Due To COVID-19 Related Restrictions on Mass Gatherings, the 2021 NC Blueberry Festival Is Cancelled. We will be back in 2022!!

2021 NC Blueberry Festival Cancellation Statement

For the past 17 years, the award-winning NC Blueberry Festival has been one of the most widely attended festivals in our state. The Festival attract thousands of visitors annually to showcase the southeast region and celebrate blueberries grown in Bladen, Duplin, New Hanover, Pender and Sampson counties.

In light of the Covid-19 Pandemic restrictions on mass gatherings, we feel it is prudent and necessary to cancel this year’s event scheduled for June 18 – 19, 2021. We do so with the safety and well-being of our community, visitors, vendors and sponsors being foremost in our mind.

Please know this was not an easy decision. Our festival partners are like family. We realize that cancelling our treasured annual event will impact our blueberry farmers, nonprofit partners, local churches and schools, all of whom look forward to participating all year.  We also recognize that this is the second year we have had to cancel the event due to the pandemic.

We will be back! Planning for the 2022 North Carolina Blueberry Festival is already underway. Mark your calendars for June 17-18, 2022.

In the meantime, please stay safe and take care of your loved ones, neighbors and friends. We can get through this together. Our resiliency, courage, and compassion will be remembered for a long time to come.
