Strawberry lovers and festival fanatics will want to mark their calendars for the 70th Annual Poteet Strawberry Festival, which takes place April 7-9. What started as a small invitation to sample Poteet’s sweet delicacies has blossomed into an annual celebration featuring concerts with nationally known stars and regional bands, gunslingers, carnivals, contests, rodeo performances and (of course!) a strawberry auction.
Festival participants will find plenty of local, fresh strawberries to eat and purchase.
Ticket prices range from $5 to $15 and include access to all entertainment. Poteet is located about 25 miles south of San Antonio on State Hwy16. For directions, ticket prices and a full list of events, visit www.strawberryfestival.com.
