PONCHATOULA

The Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival
For over 30 years, the Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival has provided a venue as the largest fundraiser for non-profit and charitable organizations. The festival prides itself as being one of the only festivals in which non-profit organizations are the only vendors on the official festival grounds. The festival is normally held each year on the second weekend in April.

Ponchatoula is located along Interstate 55 and Highway 22, a position that puts it an equal distance between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.In the early 1900s, Ponchatoula was one of only two ways to get to New Orleans by land, giving it the title of "Gateway to New Orleans."

Ponchatoula is home to many artists covering many disciplines, musicians, authors, artists, photographers, poets, singers. Whether here by birth or choice Ponchatoula provides a creative environment.
