Humboldt Gets Ready for the Strawberry Festival on National Strawberry Day

JACKSON, Tenn. - Today is National Strawberry Day, and the city of Humboldt is already preparing for its nationally known, Strawberry Festival.

The Tennessee state government website reports Humboldt is the home of the west Tennessee Strawberry Festival.

The festival is held every year in the first week of May.

Established in 1934, it has gained national recognition for one of the largest grand float parades in America and possibly the largest non-motorized parade in the world.

“Oh gosh I just love seeing all the people come to Humboldt and it really highlights our town for one week out of the year, where we just shine up everything, put our best foot forward, and we really showcase what Humboldt has to offer here in west Tennessee.”

Events coordinator Beth Culpepper is counting down the weeks until Strawberry Festival week.

The Strawberry Festival website reports the festival is a classic west Tennessee homecoming as people from all over the country travel to enjoy the week-long events and festivities.

“But it really put Humboldt on the map, due to its farming and agricultural land.”

Some festivities you can expect at the Strawberry Festival include horse shows, fireworks, a carnival, and of course, a parade with floats and bands.

If you would like to participate in any Strawberry Festival activities, Culpepper encourages you to visit the festival’s website at
