What started out as a two-three acre u-pick patch in 1997 has now grown into one of the largest spring festivals and agri-tourism events in the state with acres and acres of fun for people of all ages. Despite the growth and additional attractions and activities added to the event through the years, this event has always and will always be about strawberries.
This year a new giant rock climbing wall, courtesy of James Island County Park, will be featured in the Family Attractions area along with a petting zoo, pig races, acrobatic dog shows, three story slide tower, playground area, event contests and entertainment. Over 20 festival rides will featured and of course, there will be u-pick strawberries as long as berries are available.
