A "berry" sweet event is rolling into Plant City starting Thursday.

  • Florida Strawberry Festival returns to Plant City
  • Festival runs from Mar. 2 - 12
  • Entertainment, rides, exhibits among the fun
  • Strawberry Festival

The Florida Strawberry Festival is back and runs through March 12. 

The festival features agricultural and livestock exhibits, rides, shows and entertainment, and of course, some "berry" sweet food.

The Strawberry Festival represents a piece of Americana, a time in American history when fairs and festivals brought communities together through celebrations of their harvests. 

The event is now one of the best festivals in the nation and ranks among the top 40 fairs in North America. 

With their growing popularity, they must be serving up something sweet -- like their World-Famous Strawberry Shortcake. 

And as you choose which delicious strawberry creation you'll be savoring, you'll get to listen to some great music! 

Some of the festival's headliners include:

For King and Country

Kip Moore

3 Doors Down

Little Big Town

Scotty McCreery

The Blues Brothers

Maddie and Tae

Rascal Flatts
