Get ready to see red this weekend! The Strawberry Festival in Pasadena is back this weekend and it promises to be lots of fun! The Pasadena Strawberry Festival is a three-day event held annually on the third weekend in May to celebrate a time when Pasadena, Texas was known as “The Strawberry Capital Of The South”.
Events include crowd favorites like the BBQ Cook-off, Car & Truck Show, Beauty Pageant, Live Music Concerts and lots more! Kids and adults alike can look forward to the petting zoo, gelly ball fights and the very popular Gator Country event! Also, don’t forget to check out the biggest strawberry shortcake in the world!
The Pasadena Strawberry Festival’s mission is to produce a large event to help support nonprofits, to help give opportunities to students to further their education through our scholarship program, and to preserve and celebrate the history of Pasadena Texas.
