Blueberry Festival

12th Annual North Carolina Blueberry Festival

Saturday, June 20, 2015 in Historic Downtown Burgaw. The festival celebrates the historic, economic, and cultural significance of blueberries in the southeastern region of our state.


Held on the third Saturday in June

The Blueberry Festival provides an opportunity for people to enjoy a full day of family entertainment while experiencing the southern hospitality of a small town.

More than 30,000 people are estimated to attend the annual one day event.

The Festival is a great source of local pride, with the entire community involved in promoting Burgaw to the world in its finest shade of blue. More than 100 volunteers are required to stage over 20 events ranging from entertainment to car show, a street fair, recipe contest, barbeque cook-off, a 5K run, special exhibits, and a variety of other events.
