Florida Strawberry Festival Cancels All Headline Entertainment for 2021
The Festival posted the following statement on their social media accounts yesterday (11/19/20)
A message from Florida Strawberry Festival President Paul Davis:
Dear Festival Friends,
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have decided to forgo headline entertainment for the 2021 event.
We have met with the Hillsborough County Health Department along with local and state officials to ensure we’re up to date with the latest guidelines and recommendations and will continue to do that leading up to the 2021 event. Everyone we have met with feels confident the plan we’re developing for our festival this year will be safe and effective.
We are diligently planning to ensure visitors to the 2021 festival can have a safe and fun experience with their families just like they have for 85 years! This year, we believe it is in the best interest of everyone, guests and entertainers, to not have patrons sitting shoulder to shoulder for an extended period of time.
All of our other major attractions including rides, livestock shows, on-grounds entertainment, concessions, and exhibits will continue at this point.
We realize this has been a difficult year for everyone and this change is not what any of us wanted, but we all need something to look forward to, and we are more energized than ever to provide an outstanding event.
We look forward to seeing you at BerryFest21!
