Strawberry Eating Competition

For more than 50 years the locals of the Redlands have gathered together to celebrate, honour and admire the sweet, tasty strawberry.

They made jams, wine, scones, salads, smoothies and just about anything else they could think of.  They dressed up as strawberries; they held strawberry dances and they even crowned a miss strawberry queen. All to promote the plight of the little red berry that grew on the ground in its hundreds of thousands on the rich red soil of the Redlands.

RedFest is proud to continue with this tradition every year by holding “The World Famous Strawberry Eating Competition” where lovers of this fine berry come together to partake of a small bowl of fruit in the fastest time known to man, woman and child. The Strawberry Eating Competition heats will be held at RedFest with the semi-finals and final on Sunday 7th at RedFest.
