Blueberry Festival
Visit Vermont's official Blueberry Festival: July 25 - August 2, 2014



Do you love all things blue?
The Blueberry Festival is the place for you!

Berries, Vintage Cars, 
Music, and Food. If it’s blue, it’s probably happening in the Mount Snow area towns of Wilmington, Whitingham and Dover in late July and early August.
 
The Deerfield Valley Blueberry Festival is the culmination of a community effort coordinated by Janet Boyd from Boyd Family Farm in Wilmington and the Mount Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce in which dozens of businesses, organizations and individuals have created blueberry or blue themed events happening the first ten days of August. “It’s fun, it’s silly, and something everyone can take part in,” Boyd says of the event. 
Visitors to the Valley will find a Big Blue Parade, a Blue Street Fair, children's activities, jam making, blueberry themed specials in the local eateries, blue music events, a blue car auto show, blueberry bake sales, blue beer, special “Blues fees” at Mount Snow’s Golf Course as well as pick your own blueberry opportunities. Don’t miss Boyd Farm's “Fields of Blue” public art display.  Inspired by Christo and Jean-Claude’s Central Park orange canvas display “The Gates”; Vermont farmers Janet and Buck Boyd’s display of blue tarps in their fields will have you chuckling.
                   



 DID YOU KNOW? July is national blueberry month because that is the peak of the harvest season. 


We would like to thank our Sponsors for their generous contributions in helping to make the 6th Annual 
Blueberry Festival another memorable experience!

DID YOU KNOW? If all the blueberries grown in North America in one year were spread out in a single layer, they would cover a four-lane highway that stretched from New York to Chicago.   


DID YOU KNOW? American poet, Robert Frost, loved blueberries so he wrote a poem about them. You guessed it; the poem was called "Blueberries." 




DID YOU KNOW? Early American colonists made grey paint by boiling blueberries in milk.
