Now in its 71st year, the Poteet Strawberry Festival, for our money one of the most unique and fun events in Texas, might just prove the perfect warm-up for Fiesta.

At the massive fair, which packs in good times for people of all ages, the focus is definitely on the delectable titular berry, but the variations on that theme are many and impressive. Suffice it to say that you can get your hands on just about anything with strawberries you’d ever want. Not a fan of strawberries? While that makes you highly suspect as a person, we won’t hold it against you — and, there is still plenty in the way of food, drink and fun for you down in Poteet.

Increasingly, the Strawberry Festival serves up quite the bill of entertainment, this year featuring more than 130 acts. The stacked music lineup includes Tanya Tucker, Ramon Ayala (!), Jaime y Los Chamacos, The Spazmatics, Natalie Rose and so many more. Throughout 14 areas of continuous entertainment, concerts are supplemented by gunslingers, carnival favorites, various contests, rodeo performances, and the like. As ever, the Strawberry Festival promises to offer fun for the whole family.

$5-$15, 6pm-midnight Fri April 13, 10am-1am Sat April 14, 10am-11pm Sun April 15, 9199 N. State Hwy. 16, Poteet, (830) 742-8144,
