"We are diligently planning to ensure visitors to the 2021 festival can have a safe and fun experience with their families just like they have for 85 years," said Florida Strawberry Festival President Paul Davis. "This year, we believe it is in the best interest of everyone, guests and entertainers, to not have patrons sitting shoulder to shoulder for an extended period of time."

No other changes to the event have been announced. Back in November, organizers said they still planned to continue other major attractions such as rides, concessions, exhibits and livestock shows.
