Celebrate all things related to the red, heart-shaped fruit at this popular festival, now in its 34th year. The main attraction? Strawberry dishes that range from the expected (atop funnel cake, chocolate-dipped) to the surprising (ever had strawberry nachos or beer?). On top of 50 food booths, find a build-your-own strawberry shortcake tent, concerts, celebrity chef cooking demos, arts and crafts, contests, and the for-kids Strawberryland with free rides and attractions. Located in Oxnard (, 3250 South Rose Ave), it's a bit of a trek, but the drive is worth it. Plus, all of the festival's proceeds go to benefit more than 20 Southland charities.
