Poteet Strawberry Festival

Description

Located in the heart of the Artesian Belt, Poteet is recognized as the "Strawberry Capital of Texas".

Held annually in April, the Poteet Strawberry Festival has 14 areas of continuous entertainment featuring concerts with nationally known Country Western and Tejano stars, regional bands, gunslingers, carnival, various contests, and rodeo performances. There is something for the whole family!

The Poteet Strawberry Festival Association will celebrate the 67th Annual Poteet Strawberry Festival in April, 2014.  Since the annual event draws crowds in excess of 100,000, the demand for Poteet strawberries is greater than the supply.  Unfortunately, outside strawberry markets move into the Poteet area to take advantage of the crowds.  The Association has no control of vendors outside the Festival Grounds.  However, to assure that our guests are getting the genuine articles, all local berries will be in newly designed boxes which state "Fresh Produce-Poteet, Texas" during Festival Weekend.  The Poteet growers are also offered locations on the Festival Grounds to sell their berries.
