The 27th Annual Santa Maria Valley Strawberry Festival wraps up another successful year.   Interim Fair Manager Joe Brengle said, “The rain and wind contributed to a slow start, but overall we were happy with the results.  We ended the Festival with an attendance of 57, 716, down just 13%.  Friday night we closed the gates at 8pm due to the rain, but then on Sunday our attendance was higher than last year”.

The Festival is a celebration of the beginning of our Strawberry season here on the Central Coast.  It’s an opportunity for families to come out and enjoy a fun filled day.
