If the blueberry is going to be called a “superfood,” then a festival revolving around them should be called a “super party.”
Last year the Bridgeton BlueberryFest proved to be a huge success, bringing 2000 people and 70 vendors!
This time around the festival for 2017 is expected to be twice as big with 140 vendors and spread over 2 days, June 23-24! Promoting businesses of the community of Bridgeton, bringing vendors from across the state and out of state, sharing locally grown blueberries, bringing celebrities to celebrate with the festival goers, and bringing a family atmosphere to the event are the goals for 2017!
After surviving the first Bridgeton BlueberryFest on June 25, 2016, the Bridgeton Community Watch had a vision of bringing back the celebration of that luscious little berry to the people of Bridgeton, Craven County, and eastern NC.
Blueberries have always been an integral part of the town of Bridgeton, bringing in locals and visitors to pick their own!
The Morris Farm, the Nelson Farm, and Southside Farm will supply blueberries to the ravenous crowd on our festival grounds at the Bridgeton Harbor Marina!
The 2017 BlueberryFest will feature an array of local crafters, vendors selling goods, and businesses from Bridgeton and Craven County to help celebrate the luscious, tangy bite of the local blueberry!
Planning is underway for a Saturday breakfast of blueberry pancakes sponsored and served by the Bridgeton United Methodist Church; a blueberry baking competition; rides and activities for kids; a Friday night flotilla; a Saturday evening beach music concert with The Breeze Band; a pirate invasion and more!
Come celebrate with the fine people of Bridgeton North Carolina!
