2022 Blueberry Festivals in Mississippi - Where, When and More to Find a Blueberry Festival Near You!

Mississippi

Blueberries typically ripen from April (in Florida and Texas) through June and August in the upper Midwest and New England. June dominates as the month for blueberry production (and festivals) Unlike strawberries, which grow almost anywhere, blueberries are grown commercially in half as many states.

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.
