The 56th Annual National Blueberry Festival will be held August 8-11, 2019!
South Haven's signature event Since 1963, the National Blueberry Festival began when a group of South Havenites got together to plan a small event to celebrate the blueberry harvest. South Haven is the epicenter of highbush blueberry production and a large part of the economy and cultural heritage is connected with the prominence of agriculture in the region. Combined with the blueberry's charms of being beautiful, delicious and oh-so-healthy, the Blueberry Festival quickly became a very popular and successful event! The early festivals were largely focused on baking competitions, recipe exchanges, and the ever-popular Blueberry Festival parade.
The National Blueberry Festival has evolved and grown over the years, but its core mission remains the same - to celebrate South Haven, the agriculture, and that almighty king of berries, the BLUEBERRY! Each year we revel in the opportunity to welcome visitors and friends to South Haven to take part in this celebration, whether it is their first time or their 56th!
