12th Annual Vista Strawberry Festival 🍓 this Weekend!
The 12th Annual Vista Strawberry Festival, presented by Tri-City Medical Center, is back this weekend in Historic Downtown Vista. Join us from 8am – 6pm to celebrate everything strawberry!
The fun starts on Saturday when the Children’s Paradise Kids Zone opens in the Vista Magnet Middle School field. Start the festival day off right with a 5K and Kids runs. Visit the many stages with entertainment playing all day or participate in one of our many contests, including the crowd favorite Strawberry Pie Eating Contest!
Support local non-profits by visiting Strawberry Alley and enjoying the many strawberry treats available. Cool down with some beer at our Beer Garden (21+) filled with local brewers or visit The Film Hub to watch our participants for the Strawberry Film Festival.
