The Blueberry Fun Festival planning team is working hard on planning for this year's festival. We have not yet made a definitive decision but remain cautiously optimistic that we will have a festival this year. Again, this has not yet been confirmed, but we encourage you to keep your calendar open for July 31st for this wonderful annual event. 

 

We are cautiously optimistic we will  be able to have the Blueberry Fun Festival this year, though we expect there may be some changes.  Possible changes we are considering:

  • Advance ticket purchases with designated time slots (example: 9:30-10:00 am; arrive any time in that time)
  • Changes to how items are served

 

What will not change

Yummy Blueberrry Pancakes!

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.
