The Blueberry Festival was designed as an annual family fun festival. It gives reference to the Blueberry Industry that once was an important part of our area and culture. The Blueberry Festival also gives our community the opportunity to showcase itself to those from outside our area.  It is a "give-back" for all the hard work each and every one of us contributes to making our community what it is. The Blueberry Festival is a "street fair" type of event.

 

Our theme is Blueberry, but our event offers much, much more.
