Both Strawberry festivals are sold out

The last tickets for Strawberry Fall were sold yesterday, several weeks after Spring also sold out, continuing the trend of earlier sellouts each year as the festival, now in its 25th season, continues to grow in popularity. Those who did not get tickets are not entirely out of luck, however. Strawberry Ticket Exchange, an independent site unaffiliated with the festival, is the best place to look. Craig's List is another. Be aware that there are more buyers than sellers, however.

My experience is that a good number of tickets free up during the last three or four days before the festival opens. If you really want to go, there's a good chance you'll get them at the last minute. Don't let unscrupulous sellers gouge you from more than the face value, however. Nobody wants to seeing scalpers making a profit on the festival. It is not The Strawberry Way.
