Gilroy may have its Garlic Festival and Los Angeles may have lost its Tofu Festival (and let's not forget the upcoming Asparagus Festival in Stockon and Artichoke Festival in Castroville), but out in neighboring Ventura County, the California Strawberry Festival continues to rock on, bringing out hordes of people. This year, the sweet fête will take place on the third weekend of May and will, as always, include strawberry-infused foods of every kind: kabobs, funnel cake, flan, cotton candy, beer, wine and more. Unconfirmed, but we hear this year will include some celebrity chefs and mixologist-inspired drinks. The festival is also host to one massively large arts & crafts section, with around 250 booths. General admission is $12
