You already know the best places to pick strawberries in Georgia, but do you know which cities are home to the best strawberry festivals?
The Ottawa Farms Strawberry Festival in Bloomingdale, Georgia, has been a community favorite for years. Held April 2-3, 2022, it features artists, bands, dancers, pig races, food vendors and, of course, strawberry picking. Admission is $5 for visitors 4 years and older.
There's nothing quite like spending a spring Saturday enjoying fun on the farm, so Rutland Farms has taken the very best of the farm and turned it into a Strawberry Jubilee available every Saturday in April. The fun starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 6 p.m. Kids can enjoy the bounce house, petting zoo, hay rides, strawberry picking, barrel train ride, and more. Admission is $8 per person. (Children under 2 are free with a paid adult.)
The Georgia Strawberry Festival is a family-friendly event April 23, 2022. It features a 5K run, children’s parade, live musical entertainment, a fire truck pull, dachshund races, arts and crafts sale, vintage tractor show, strawberry pie eating contest and more. Admission is free.
