Come on out to the fifth annual Bluesberry Jam and Lowcountry Blueberry Festival on Sunday, June 21, from 12 to 7 pm at Blue Pearl Farms for the most delicious blueberries in the lowcountry and some of the region’s best blues musicians jamming on the stage by Cypress Pond. You can also make your best try at breaking the world record for the Blueberry Toss, currently 43 feet six inches: one person throws the blueberry, and the other catches it…in their mouth.
This year’s Bluesberry Jam focuses on incredibly talented musical artists whose resumes include gigs with Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Howlin’ Wolf, Mick Taylor, Bobby Blue Bland, John Lee Hooker and Lee Shot Williams. The festival features live music all day, demonstrations by artisans, beekeepers and blueberry keepers, and a special session with members of the Sea Turtle Team who work with Cape Romain National Wildlife Preserve. Sewee Association environmental guides and their ‘touch tent’ full of hands-on exploration activities help you discover some of the secrets of our rich environment. Great food, all local artists and artisans, the world famous Blueberry Toss competition, fun activities for kids, blueberry picking, and honey tasting fill out the day.
This is an all ages event, and everyone is welcome. Please leave your pets at home. Bring a blanket or chairs to set up next to Cypress Pond. No outside alcohol or coolers; food, cold drinks, beer and wine available. Tickets are $10 for adults and children 15 and under are free. Gates open at 11 am. A portion of the proceeds from the festival directly benefits the Friends of Coastal South Carolina’s local sea turtle conservation program.
Volunteers are needed and welcome for the entire day of music, demonstrations, environmental education and more, so please consider sharing a couple of hours of your time to help out with set up, event activity, or quick clean up afterwards.
