Garden Grove Playhouse 
 
 
 
"For many years, the City of Garden Grove stood alone as not having its own Theater. In 1974, a group of residents banded together to discuss the need for a community theater group. Bylaws and goals were written, plays were discussed, and the Garden Grove Community Theatre was born.... In 1995, the theater members changed the group's name to The Garden Grove Playhouse and the group is now celebrating 20 years in Eastgate Park and 2004 will mark its 30th anniversary of existence."  Garden Grove
Garden Grove Strawberry Festival 
 
 
"The Strawberry Festival over the years has evolved into a variety of Commercial booths, Arts and Crafts, Game Booths, Food Booths and major Carnival Rides which dot the landscape of the Village Green, located between Euclid Avenue and Main Street, two blocks north of Garden Grove Boulevard. The Strawberry Festival Amphitheater, located at the South End of the Village Green, which was built for the city by funds raised by the Association, provides a charming venue for the many stage shows featuring celebrity and local performers. The largest Strawberry Shortcake is devoured by hungry fairgoers on opening night. The Strawberry Festival is always held Memorial Day weekend. A parade highlights Saturday’s festivities as it winds its way to the Festival grounds. The Strawberry Festival has raised over $4.2 million for local organizations, including the Police and Fire Departments, Boys and Girls Club, Acacia Day Care Center for the frail elderly, The Assistance League and many others. In addition, local service, fraternal, school, and church groups raise thousands more each year."  Garden Grove
