As I was looking at upcoming events I realized how much sooner the Strawberry Festival in Arroyo Grande really was. Arroyo Grande’s Strawberry Festival is one of the largest in California with booths of every nature. There are hundreds of booths ranging from arts and crafts to booths with tons of different food and what would a strawberry festival be without strawberries? So don’t forget all of the different kinds of strawberry booths; Funnel cakes with strawberries, strawberry shortcake, strawberry daiquiris’, strawberry ice cream and tons of other strawberry delights. The festival takes place on Memorial weekend, May 29th-30th, all day, both days. Vendors from all over bring you hours of enjoyment to share with thousands of others walking the streets of the Old Village of Arroyo Grande. Other than the hundreds of vendors, there will also be entertainment all around the festival! There will be live bands, games for the kids, a petting zoo, and those amazing confetti eggs that we all love to pick out of our hair afterwards! While you are there, you can pick up a bite to eat from any of the food vendors or visit my favorite place, Alphy’s Broiler, or any of the other amazing restaurants that the Old Village has to offer. The great thing about the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival is, ADMISSION IS FREE and there is free parking around the town with a free shuttle service!
