It’s that time of year again! We are now days away from the fun and festive Poteet Strawberry Festival. Growing up going in the Southside of San Antonio, Texas, visiting the “Strawberry Capital of Texas” to attend the annual festival with friends and family has become a tradition. Did you know the 1st Annual Poteet Strawberry Festival was in 1948? The Poteet Strawberry Festival is held every year on the second weekend of April…which happens to usually land on my birthday…just FYI. The event attracts people from all over Texas and encourages them to have fun listening to live music, get on rides, and of course, enjoy fresh strawberries. Each year the festival funds approximately thirty scholarships to Poteet graduates which is another great reason to attend the fest. This year #TheAMMCollection has collaborated with Pablo Reyna, Digital Marketing Director for the Poteet Strawberry Festival to giveaway a family 4 pack of tickets to one of my lucky readers. Here are a few words from Mr. Reyna on behalf of the Poteet Strawberry Festival Association and The Poteet Strawberry Festival.
I want to start by saying it’s an honor to collaborate with April Mae Monterrosa and the #TheAMMCollection in promoting the 70th Annual 2017 Poteet Strawberry Festival in the outlying Southern area of San Antonio, TX. In appreciation of April Mae Monterrosa and YOU, blog readers, fans, followers, and extended family of #TheAMMCollection, we will be giving away Family 4 Pack of tickets to this year’s #PoteetStrawberryFestival, good for any day during the Strawberry Festival, April 7th-9th, 2017. Good luck to all! And don’t forget to share your photos with us using #PSFTX2017 on your social media.
This year’s Strawberry Festival in Poteet, Texas we are celebrating 70 years of a time-honored tradition as the “Strawberry Capital of Texas” in hosting the annual Poteet Strawberry Festival. The annual Festival allows the Poteet Strawberry Festival Association and the community at large to support local Poteet High School Students, the local community businesses and non-profits of Atascosa County, Poteet, Texas. The annual Poteet Strawberry Festival brings over 100,000 attendees to Poteet, Texas and South San Antonio and the surrounding area. As the “Strawberry Capital” we have local growers that are responsible for supplying H-E-B strawberries for Creamy Creations Poteet Strawberry Festival Ice Cream, Poteet Country Strawberry Wine, and so many more things. If you’d like to pick your own strawberries we have several local growers that offer self-picking of pints or flats of FRESH LOCALLY GROWN strawberries from Poteet, TX. Contact our local growers for more information. Some growers that offer self-picking are: Mr & Mrs. Jose & Lorena Dominguez with Strawberryville Farm, Will Bates with Three Cousins Strawberry Patch and KH Farm, visit the list of growers at www.StrawberryFestival.com (http://bit.ly/PSFTXGrowers).
We appreciate all our festival attendees, fans, and extended family, volunteers and sponsors which allow us to make every year a success. More importantly our only two staff members, Carol, and Anna, are the most important piece of the puzzle organizing and coordinating everything. If you’re interested in being a vendor, sponsor, or entertainer for next year’s festival please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
