Each year during the third weekend in August we celebrate a part of our local heritage, wild blueberries with the Wild Blueberry Festival. An art fair, entertainment, and wonderful local food are part of the festivities. The celebration also showcases informative programs of music, nature, and lore all featuring local history.
Wild blueberries thrive in the area, and some commercial picking continues south and west of Paradise. The low bush varieties, found in open, sunny areas ripen from late July through August. Highbush berries may be found in shade and ripen from late August through September.
Wild blueberry pancakes, pies, muffins, and buckles are some favorites offed at the Festival. Don’t miss tasting our wonderful homemade wild blueberry pie!
