  • Thursday, April 18 (Opening night) – 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Student Night
  • Friday, April 19 – 4 p.m. to Midnight
  • Saturday, April 20 – 10 a.m. to Midnight
  • Sunday, April 21 – Noon to 7 p.m.

Admission to the Lowcountry Strawberry Festival is $5 for ages 12 and up, $3 for ages 3-11, and children under 2 get in free. Parking is free.

On student night, everyone who attends the festival can purchase a ‘Ride Everything Wristband' for $10. Wristband prices go up to $20 at the gate or $15 in advance for the rest of the festival. Ride tickets will also be available.
