Poteet Strawberry Festival

Located in the heart of the Artesian Belt, Poteet is recognized as the "Strawberry Capital of Texas".  No doubt, Henry and Ida Mumme, the city's founders, would be amazed to see what acclaim is now attached to the crop which started as a few rows in Mumme's kitchen garden.
The first year of marketing Poteet strawberries proved very successful and strawberries sold for $20....that's more than they sell for on today's market.  In 1921 a group of Poteet citizens invited guests from San Antonio to partake in its new found delicacies.  Headlines in the San Antonio Express read, "Crimson Berries Beckon Hungry Tourists to Poteet."  The Poteet Rotary Club continued the tradition when it organized the 1st Annual Poteet
