Berries, parades, block parties, music, food and tarp displays; if it’s blue, it’s probably happening in Southern Vermont’s Mount Snow area towns of Wilmington, Jacksonville, Whitingham, Readsboro, Marlboro and Dover. Visitors to the valley will find children’s activities, family fun, blueberry themed specials in the local eateries, blue music events, blueberry bake sales and blue beer. There will be many events over this 10 day festival. It’s fun, it’s silly and something everyone can take part in.
A family fun frenzy (and substance free) to celebrate anything blueberry, including local restaurants creating special menu items for the occasion. Experience these Deerfield Valley communities being Bigger, Better and Blue! 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, 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.
