Pasadena Strawberry Festival
Friday, May 20, 2011 at 3:00 PM - Sunday, May 22, 2011 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
The San Jacinto Day Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Proceeds from the Pasadena Strawberry Festival benefit San Jacinto Day Foundation projects including:
In 1974 a small group of enthusiastic Pasadena citizens gathered in a tent on a football practice field for the opening of the Pasadena Historical Museum and celebrated San Jacinto Day with the very first Strawberry Festival. Strawberries, famous for their size and sweetness, were the first big business in Pasadena, Texas. As many as twenty-eight train carloads of strawberries a day left Pasadena loading sheds going as far north as Chicago and Kansas City. These strawberries not only brought premium prices, but also earned Pasadena the coveted title "Strawberry Capitol of the South."
Today, with over five hundred volunteers, the Pasadena Strawberry Festival continues to celebrate Pasadena's heritage on the 106-acre Pasadena Convention Center and Municipal Fairgrounds complex and attracts over 60,000 visitors.
You, too, are invited to come enjoy three fun-filled days of activities, attractions and entertainment the whole family will enjoy.
It is the mission of the San Jacinto Day Foundation to encourage and promote the observance of San Jacinto Day and produce one of the largest fund raising events in the state of Texas, the Pasadena Strawberry Festival.
