Each year, about the time strawberries ripen in Texas, the San Jacinto Day Foundation holds its annual Strawberry Festival to commemorate the 1836 Battle of San Jacinto.
Year after year, the Pasadena Strawberry Festival is a favorite spring tradition for the city once known as the "Strawberry Capital of the South." The event offers festival seekers a wide variety of activities and entertainment ranging from the world's largest strawberry shortcake, barbecue cook-offs and beauty pageants to musical entertainment and mud volleyball. Family entertainment also includes a parade, a midway, arts and crafts, specialty acts, mutton bustin', a strawberry eating contest and much more that draws a crowd of over 58,000 people from throughout Southeast Texas and beyond.
All proceeds generated from
the Pasadena Strawberry Festival fund scholarships for local youth, books for
college libraries and various community projects that help the Foundation's
mission to preserve and promote the study of Texas history. Find out more at the
