Portland's first Strawberry Festival was held in 1941. Ever since that time, the Festival has been a collaborative effort between the City of Portland, our businesses, our farmers, our schools, the Chamber of Commerce, our churches, our fraternal and civic organizations, our musicians, and many others. Our annual Festival is our time to showcase Portland, and we invite you to come join us for the festivities! NMT Web Designs, LLC lists the events below as a community service. Not all of the events listed below are part of the "official" Middle Tennessee Strawberry Festival® umbrella. However, the events fall in the same general date range, and they may also be of interest to you. Enjoy!
