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!

- Bilberry Sunday
Ardagh, Longford, Ireland
Sunday is a charming old festival that lives only in Ireland's
distant memory. Celebrated in mid-summer, it was once a day when
people went to hillsides and peat lands in groups to collect
bilberries, and sometimes find a spouse.
