Mainers can look forward to a whole bunch of events this summer as we feel the ease of the restrictions brought about by the pandemic. One of the events we can look forward to towards the downswing of summer is one event that started in the midst of the pandemic and will no be bringing its second festival since its inception to blueberry fields across the State of Maine.

Wild Blueberry Weekend is being planned and has a date set. Blueberries will be celebrated state-wide on the weekend of August 7th and 8th.
