North Alabama has not one but two strawberry festivals! And if you want to pick your own sweet berries or pick up a bucket, you can visit several farms in north Alabama! Check them out and let us know where is your favorite place to get fresh strawberries in the spring!






Alabama Strawberry Festival

Not one, but two fun-filled days are planned in May when the North Alabama town of Cullman gears up for its annual festival centered around strawberries. Set for May 3-4, 2024, in Depot Park, the Alabama Strawberry Festival, formerly known as Cullman Strawberry Festival, promises plenty of delicious, locally grown strawberries, hometown fun, top-tier musical events on two stages and exciting events over the course of two days



As far back as 1898, the strawberry has been an agricultural calling card for Cullman and to celebrate, the town comes together to offer an event centered on the red berry. In 2023, the Governor of Alabama officially recognized the annual strawberry celebration in Cullman as the Alabama Strawberry Festival. Now in its 85th year, the event is Alabama’s longest-running strawberry festival and is expanding to two days with two musical stages. Many local farmers will be on hand selling their produce, and most importantly, fresh, locally grown strawberries. Make sure to stop by the Festhalle Marketplatz early to purchase a basket of berries to take home.


Along with fresh strawberries, the Strawberry Festival offers a variety of food vendors with strawberry menu items, a kid’s area and over 80 artisan vendors selling strawberry-themed food, handcrafted collectibles and locally sourced products.


This year’s event welcomes Colin Stough, JD Clayton, Matt Stell and Niko Moon to the stage on Friday, May 3 and Kasey Tyndall Jesse Roper, Cousin Curtiss, Eric Hutchinson, Easton Corbin and headliner Eli Young Band on Saturday, May 4. Anyone will be able to view the concert, but the best vantage point with reserved seating will require a ticket. Premium general admission ticket is $29.99/single day and $49.99/two day pass and VIP is $79.99/single day and $99.99/two day pass. Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased at New for 2024, the Wallace State Community College Fresh Picks Stage will feature rising artists Lamont Landers, The Pink Stones, Banditos, & Nat Myers.



Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, May 3 and 9 a.m. to a 10 p.m. Saturday, May 4 at the Festhalle Farmers Market and Depot Park located at 309 1st Avenue NE in downtown Cullman. Admission is free.

Moulton’s berry delicious event returns the first weekend in May for two days of family fun, fresh strawberries, and live music. Now in its ninth year, the 2024 Strawberry Festival is set for May 3-4 with activities taking place at the Lions Club Fairgrounds. 

As the month of May approaches and warm weather fills the air with the arrival of springtime, parents in search of family-friendly activities will want to put the Strawberry Festival on their schedule of things to do. Entertainment geared to children includes free inflatables, a bungie jump, petting zoo, horse and buggy rides ($2/person) and the Strawberry Princess Walk (Saturday).

LouAllen Farms

LouAllen Farms has been growing farm fresh produce for over 30 years. We offer fresh-picked vegetables including tomatoes, onions, okra, sweet corn, and field corn throughout the summer. You can find our produce at the farm or at the local farmer's market. In our greenhouses, we have tomato plants, pepper plants, eggplant, cabbage, squash, cucumbers, and more for your garden. Plus hydrangeas, hostas, fruit trees, and native azaleas. We are located approximately 3 miles west of downtown Moulton just a couple of miles off of Hwy 24. * If you've ever wanted to pick your own vine-ripened strawberries, fill a basket with tree-ripened peaches, or pick your own perfect watermelon, we would love to have you visit us. There's no better way to appreciate the value of homegrown produce than to harvest it yourself. Feel free to bring your children and let them experience nature, hands-on!! Please call or email for detailed information concerning what's in season and current availability. * LouAllen Farms has been raising peaches for over 30 years. Our orchard began with 4 rows and has grown to include almost 5 acres. In that time we've had great years with an overwhelming abundance of sweet, juicy peaches when the weather was perfect. And we've had every peach blossom killed by a late spring freeze. Each year is a new season with hurdles and blessings of its own. We want to express our thankfulness for a successful crop and the continued support of our patrons. We offer freshly picked peaches usually starting in early July and lasting through early September. We welcome you to give our tree-ripened peaches a try.
