A Massive Strawberry Festival Is Taking Place Near San Antonio This Spring

It's going to be a berry good time.

As Texans, we have so much to look forward to this spring, including the fact that it's strawberry season! That's right, one of our favorite fruits will be thriving, and what better way to celebrate than with an entire festival dedicated to them? This spring, a strawberry festival near San Antonio will be taking place and it deserves to be at the very top of your to-do list. 

Poteet Strawberry Festival is back for their 73rd year starting on Friday, April 3 and going until Saturday, April 5.

Poteet is less than an hour drive away from San Antonio, and less than two hours from Austin!

On Friday, the fest will be open from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

You'll have practically all day Friday through Sunday to enjoy everything the fest is bringing with it this year, and from the looks of it, you'll definitely need as much time as you can get!

Not only will the Poteet Strawberry Festival have strawberries, desserts stuffed with strawberries, and drinks made from the fruit, but plenty of photo ops with strawberries as well.

If you're looking to get some cute pictures for your feed, this is the place.

The festival will also have tons of carnival rides, animals you can interact with, concerts, performances, and more!

Country Western and Tejano music, plus Conjunto stars, a live rodeo, Gunslingers, Magic Acts, and more are said to be at this year's festival.

If you don't fall under one of these categories, prices for tickets range from $5 to $35 and will go on sale once it's officially 2020!
