Looking for a Blueberry festival in August 2018? There is no other listing as
complete and current as this list, just updated! All the Blueberry
festivals in the US, Canada and Britain we can find are listed on this page!

you know of any to add! I update the dates as soon as the festivals
publish their information, but you can always click on the links (usually

own website. Blueberries typically ripen from April (in Florida and
Texas) through May on the west coast, June in most other areas and
July-August in the far north and Canada. But June and July dominate as the
months for blueberry production (and festivals) Unlike strawberries, which
grow almost anywhere, blueberries are more typically grown in the 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). Strawberry festival held at and by a farm
38 states grow blueberries commercially, but 10 of these states dominateand
produce more than 98% of U.S. commercial production: California, Florida,
Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon
and Washington. British Columbia in Canada also produces highbush
blueberries. Even if they aren't grown locally, there may still be a
blueberry festival near you!

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!
