It is with sadness we announce that the Blueberry Fun Festival for 2020 and the 5K Trail Run have been cancelled. We look forward to the festival every year and all of you who come to enjoy the food and festivities. We thank you for your support and participation over the years.
It was a difficult decision, but with over 1,000 people typically in attendance we did not think we could safely follow the CDC and MI recommendations. So, for your health and safety, or as we say, out of love for neighbor we made the hard decision of cancelling this year’s festival.
Some things to know:
An annual event that hundreds look forward to, next year’s Blueberry Fun Festival will be held on July 31, 2021 from 8am – 1pm.
What happens at the Blueberry Fun Festival?
This is a wonderful family event – come on out and join us.

HISTORY: In 1995 Fruitland Township started the first Blueberry Festival and asked Fruitland Evangelical Covenant Church to serve the breakfast. About 300 People were served that first year. Over the years the numbers grew to about 1,000 -1,200 people served for about a 3-4 year time period. In 2009, decided to not continue hosting the Festival. So in 2010 Fruitland Covenant Church decided to take on the task of hosting the Blueberry Fun Festival and moved the location to our church where it is still held today. Since moving to the church, the Festival has grown, with more offerings, adding a 5K in 2014, and serving over 1,000 people for the last three years.
