PLANT CITY – Discounted admission tickets to the Florida Strawberry Festival are as close as the nearest Publix.
The tickets will be available through March 9 at nearly 200 Publix stores throughout the region.
Advance discounted tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children 6 to 12 years old, a $2 and $1 per ticket savings, respectively, over prices at the gate. Children age 5 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.
“We are excited to partner with Publix,” festival General Manager Paul Davis said. “We think it’s going to be a great relationship.”
The festival and Publix announced a contract a few weeks ago that included an agreement by the supermarket chain to promote the festival in its stores.

The festival will take place Feb. 27 to March 9.
Advance ticket sales are also available at the festival website, at the festival ticket office at 2209 W. Oak Ave. and through some school PTAs. After the festival starts on Feb. 27, Publix will be the only place to buy discounted gate admission tickets, Davis said.
