There’s nothing quite like a fresh, picked strawberry, still warm from the sun and dripping with juices. The farms of Pungo are famous for the best strawberries around. Every Memorial Day weekend, the Pungo community in Virginia Beach celebrate these little red berries. But they don’t do it alone, they swing open the doors of hospitality! Everyone is cordially invited to the Pungo Strawberry Festival. This is the 33rd year Pungo is celebrating their famed strawberry crop. Thousands of people come from far and wide to participate in the fun events, and of course, pick some strawberries.
Tons of activities you’d expect at an exciting rural event. Plus, vendors with amazing goodies to sample. And the star of the day, strawberries! There will be freshly picked strawberries (of course). Try desserts like strawberry shortcake and strawberry ice cream, chocolate dipped strawberries and other berry morsels.
