Strawberries, tractors and classic cars will fill the fields near Cal Poly Pomona’s Farm Store for the 10th annual Strawberry Festival, Tractor & Car Show.
Visitors to the Saturday, May 7 event can pick fresh strawberries and vegetables straight from the fields at the AGRIscapes Center near the Farm Store.
But the festival is more than a celebration of strawberries. It’s also a nostalgic blast from the past. The Tractor & Car Show will feature classic cars of all categories, styles and colors – from antique and custom to muscle and street rod – and farm tractors from different eras. New attractions this year include historical displays and exhibits of the region’s rich agricultural past, harking back to an era when citrus was king and Cal Poly Pomona was an Arabian horse ranch owned by cereal magnate W.K. Kellogg.
In addition, children can participate in activities including a petting zoo and face painting. The event also will include vendors and live musical performances.
“It’s a great activity for the whole family,” says AGRIscapes Director Craig Walters. “We invite the community to come out and enjoy a fun time together.”
The Farm Store also will feature a great selection of campus-grown produce and fruit. Customers also can shop for custom gift baskets for Mother’s Day.
The festival and show will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, but parking is $4. Parking is available in nearby university parking lots, except for Lot K where a parking structure is under construction.
