Strawberry Festival canceled in 2021, plans return for 2022
PONCHATOULA - The renowned Strawberry Festival in Tangipahoa Parish is being canceled for the second year in a row as Louisiana continues efforts to stave off the coronavirus pandemic.
Organizers released a statement Tuesday confirming the festival would miss its previously announced return this April. That comeback is now pushed back a year, with the festival scheduled for April 8-10 in 2022.
Organizers said they still plan to host the annual Farmer's Auction and Queen's Pageant when it does return.
