California Strawberry Festival 2016 – Win Tickets!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Congratulations to Shawna T!

Once again, you can celebrate all things strawberry at the California Strawberry Festival in Oxnard, returning this year on May 21 and 22. I’m giving away a set of four free tickets!

The California Strawberry Festival is a huge annual event that takes place at College Park in Oxnard. The festival is so huge and awesome – with over 50 food booths, contests, rides and attractions, over 200 Arts & Crafts vendors, concerts, celebrity chef demonstrations, and family fun – that organizers have set up free shuttle rides from local parking locations to save you money and hassle when getting there. Check out this list of shuttle stops before you go.

This year’s event will feature Strawberryland For Kids, an oasis where rides and attractions, contests, and meet & greets with
the popular Strawberry Shortcake character appeal to the young at heart. The Jest In Time Theater presented by Smart & Final hosts live shows throughout the day and the Berry Best Dressed Baby Contest encourages infants up to four years of age to participate to win prizes.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for kids 5-12. (Free for 4 and under.) Note – food booths, where you get your strawberry funnel cake and strawberry beer, take cash only.

Now please enjoy some photos of my family’s adventures at CA Strawberry Festival a few years ago. Short story: it was hot, the kids were little, and my favorite was the beer. More information at Strawberry-Fest.Org.

California Strawberry Festival Ticket Giveaway

Every so often I can hook a sister (or brother) up.  This is one of those times.  I hope you like strawberries.

The 29th Annual California Strawberry Festival is happening at Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard on May 19 and 20.  For those two days, strawberries will be celebrated, presented, and served in every way you can possibly imagine.  There will be cooking demos, arts and crafts booths, a kid zone, contests and more.

The festival is open 10:30 AM to 6:00 PM both days. Tickets cost $5-12 and parking on site is $10, but they are running free shuttles from a remote parking lot.

I am giving away a four-pack of tickets right here (does not include parking).
