The National Blueberry Festival is held on the second weekend of August each year, and is one of the country's oldest continuously-running fruit festivals! We're proud of South Haven's tremendous blueberry crop, and the important industry it represents in our area. Van Buren County is the Nation's most prolific producer of highbush blueberries, and Michigan as a whole produces upward of 100 million pounds each year.
Get to know this fruit and the people who are passionate about bringing you this 55 year old festival by attending or getting involved. Our volunteers are an integral and valued part of the Blueberry Festival and we're always looking for good people to join the team! There are many ways you can be involved, based on your interests, talent and the time you want to spend.
