About the Poteet Strawberry Festival:

First held in April 1948, the Poteet Strawberry Festival was originally conceived as a means to promote its namesake crop. Today, the purpose of the Poteet Strawberry Festival has expanded to include providing scholarships to area youth. It also serves as a tremendous tourist draw, bringing around 100,000 visitors annually to the area. It's easy to understand why so many flock to Poteet for the Strawberry Festival.
