    Strawberry Road Trip in March 

    There’s plenty of time to plan ahead for the annual Florida Strawberry Festival on Saturday, March 2 in Plant City, Florida. It’s a great opportunity to meet up with Miata friends around the state for fun, food and friendship.


    Florida Strawberry Festival

    The festival is open from 10am to 10pm and admission is $10.

    Hotel rooms are already sold out in Plant City, but there are rooms available a dozen miles away in Lakeland if drivers want to gather on Friday evening ahead of the festival.

    Check your calendars to see if your schedule permits.

    Strawberry food items include Fresh Strawberries, World-Famous Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberry Shortcake Milkshake, Assorted Strawberry Coated Nuts, Strawberry Milkshakes, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Strawberry Jam, Strawberry Sandwiches, Strawberry Peanut Brittle, Strawberry Pie and Strawberry Cheesecake, Bowl of Berries (Sugar-free available), Strawberry Pizza, Strawberry Cobbler, Strawberry Parfait, Deep Fried Strawberry Cheese Burst, Strawberry Crepes, Strawberry Lemonade, Strawberry Cream Puffs, Strawberry Kettle Korn, Strawberry Fritters, The Sweetheart Chocolate Strawberry Donut, The Strawberry Orie, The Chocoberry Orie, Strawberry Fudge and more.

      what are the recommendations for staying over the weekend?? what towns/ are near the site of the event???

    • Robert Burr 4:43pm on Monday, October 15, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      I found some rooms available in Lakeland, only 12 miles away for the festival fairgrounds. Search for hotels in Lakeland, Bartow, Mulberry, Brandon, Winter Haven, Auburndale, Lake Alfred, Polk City, Crystal Springs, Zephyrhills. All are close.


      Because the festival draws 500k people, rooms are already booked in the region, six months ahead.

      anyone expressed interest in staying at any one location?? where is the venue for the event?? don’t want to drive too much further than the place hosting the festival.

      The event page contains these details. 303 North Lemon Street in Plant City from 10am to 10pm, the admission is $10. It will be difficult for one club member to reserve all the hotel rooms for all of our friends, but anyone can easily use Expedia, Booking.com, Hotels.com, or even Google Maps, as in the link above, to find a suitable hotel room in a nearby location that matches their own budget. I found a good deal ($68) at Best Motel Lakeland, twelve miles away. 863-683-5961.
