2015 Blueberry Festival a Huge Success!
The 2015 Blueberry Festival brought in our biggest crowds to date! The 9 days of non-stop blueberry themed events and promotions proved to be family-friendly fun and entertainment. We had many events that we've featured annually such as the Jello Slip and Slide, and the Block party which hosted the Pie eating contest.
In addition to these we had many new events this year, one of them being our first ever Blueberry Splash on the lake with live musicians and a pork BBQ. Another successful new event this year was the Jacksonville Classic Car Show and Chalk Walk where people got a chance to view the antique classics, stop into Honora Winery for a tasting, and then enter in a sidewalk chalk drawing contest.
Many of our Valley's business owners celebrated this Festival with in store promotions, and discounts as well as activities for both children and adults. There were multiple musicians playing throughout Southern Vermont's Deerfield Valley during the course of the nine days, and four bands marched in our Blueberry Festival Parade in West Dover!
Our Craft Fair at the Dover Forge held many vendors with hand crafted items such as fabric, wood working, and jewelry. And the local wineries and taverns had blueberry drinks on tap for tasting.
Thank you to all who participated, volunteered and worked very hard to make this festival such a huge success, and a BIG thank you to all those who attended!
If you missed it this year, no worries! stay up to date with the 2016 Blueberry Festival on our website as well as any and all other events in the Valley.
2016 Deerfield Valley Blueberry Festival will be July 29, 2016 through August 7, 2016
