  • Florida Strawberry Festival concert tickets on sale tomorrow
  • 24 shows offered in 2018 lineup
  • Tickets can be purchased here

The 83rd annual Florida Strawberry Festival will take place March 1-11 in Plant City. 

Two dozen shows are being offered in the 2018 lineup, including Brad Paisley, Reba McEntire, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Casting Crowns, Justin Moore with Dylan Scott, The Band Perry, and the 'I love the 90s tour' featuring Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa, and Tone Loc. 

"We sifted through hundreds of entertainers, working to find those we thought were the best fit for our guests," said Florida Strawberry Festival President Paul Davis. "We're proud of the lineup we have secured."

Advance tickets for admission are also available beginning Thursday and can be bought while purchasing tickets for shows. Advance admission tickets are $8 for adults, $4 for children 6 to 12 years old and children 5 years old and under are admitted free with a paying adult.

Guests will also experience a newly constructed seating area, which is expected to be complete by the end of the month. The new bleacher-style seating will accommodate 9,200 total guests and is closer to the stage. It will also be more comfortable for guests. 

Another change is that the even will no longer offer free seating to headline shows. 

"We have made a lot of changes this year which we think are best in ensuring a bright future for the festival," said Davis. "But our patrons seem to be excited about the changes, and, as of this morning, we already have fans camping out in front of the ticket office to secure their concert tickets."

Tickets can be purchased online at flstrawberryfestival.com or by calling 813-754-1996.
