Blueberry festivals in other countries

Blueberries are thought of as a uniquely American fruit, but there are very similar berries in other countries. A huckleberry or Saskatoon, found in Canda and parts of the U.S. are related to the blueberry. In the UK, you may find a  whorlberry or whortleberry  and, in Scotland, blaeberry. And through much of Europe, a bilberry.  Bilberries are very dark blue berries about half as big as a blueberries (think a pea). They are very tart / sour and have some sweetness, with yellowish insides.

There is almost no information about these festivals online, so if you know of any, let me know, and I'll add the details here!
