The Pasadena Strawberry Festival is just around the corner. As always you won’t be disappointed with the events scheduled.

History of the Pasadena Strawberry Festival

In 1974 a small group of Pasadena, TX residents gathered at a tent on a football practice field. The event was celebrating San Jacinto Day and this was also the beginning of what is now known as the Pasadena Strawberry Festival. Strawberries were the first big business in Pasadena, Texas. As many as twenty-eight train carloads of strawberries a day left Pasadena and went as far as Chicago and Kansas City. Pasadena became known as the ‘Strawberry Capitol of the South.”

Today, there are over 500 volunteers and the town continue to celebrate Pasadena’s heritage on the 106- acre Pasadena Convention Center and Fairgrounds. The event attracts over 58,000 visitors.

The three-day event provides fun, entertainment and activities for all ages. Take a look at this year’s schedule of events. You will not want to miss out!
