The Garden Grove Strawberry Festival is a non-profit organization (501-c-3) dedicated to raising funds for the community. Each year local charities who apply for capital expenditure funds, receive a combined total of up to $100,000 from the previous year’s profits.  In addition:

  • Scholarships to local school students are also awarded.
  • Charities are permitted to sell food at the event to raise money for their organizations.
  • The festival also treats over 2,000 special needs kids to a day of free rides and food.
  • The board also subsidizes local school bands to help them participate in the Saturday parade.

The Garden Grove Strawberry Festival Association has raised more than $7 million for local charities since its inception in 1958.
