2019 Blueberry Festivals in Massachusetts - Where, When and More to Find a Blueberry Festival Near You!

 Massachusetts

Blueberries typically ripen in July and even August in Massachusetts and most of New England. July and August dominates as the months for blueberry production (and festivals). And while Maine is famous for wild blueberries, even these are now mostly grown on afrms; "wild" refers to the origions of the plant variety, rather than the method of cultivation.

There are two general types of blueberry festivals 1) community festivals, usually organized by a church, school, local Chamber of commerce or a town and 2). Blueberry festival held at and by a farm. They are different in what they offer, and community festivals tend to be less expensive so they are grouped separately. (of course not all states and areas have both.)
Following the festival listings are links to our easy to follow directions about making blueberry jam, freezing blueberries, blueberry pies and much more.
