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. Growers, packers, u-picks, specialty equipment, agritourism, cottage industry and more convene right here in Southwest Michigan, and it's all thanks to the delicious and healthy king of fruits- the almighty blueberry!
The main stage of the Blueberry Festival is located at the South Side Marina, 345 Water Street, South Haven, Michigan.
The National Blueberry Festival is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, run entirely by volunteers. The festival is only possible by the generous donations of businesses and individuals. Please consider donating to the Blueberry Festival! Donations can be made at 408 Eagle St. during the festival, or mail to PO BOX 482, South Haven, MI 49090.
