The 6th Annual Lowcountry Blueberry Festival & "Bluesberry Jam"
Sunday 12-7 pm, June 26, 2016
It's back! The last Sunday in June...June 26 from noon until 7 pm at Blue Pearl Farms, the Lowcountry Blueberry Festival. Pick blueberries, mingle with local artisans, and treat yourself to the best lowcountry blues by the stage at Cypress Pond with the return of the Blueberry Jam.
A special tribute to the blues is on the schedule as Smoky Weiner returns to the Lowcountry with the Hot Links, featuring Nature Boy Nik on guitar, John Picard on bass, and Stevie Kent on drums, followed by Momma's Blues Palace Review with Rhonda "Momma" Wall, lead guitarist James "Papa Dupree" Wall, and JoJo Wall on bass, backed by High Gravity with Eddie Phillips on guitar, Juke Joint Johnny playing harmonica, and John Picard on drums.
Come on out and have blueberry fun with prizes for the largest blueberry picked every hour and of course, everyone's favorite, the Lowcountry Blueberry Toss (one person throws, and the other person catches the blueberry in their mouth). Don't forget to enjoy picking your own basket of blueberries. Sample farm-made blueberry treats and blueberry lemonade. Stop by Fresh Future Farms and learn about their efforts to bring fresh food, urban farming, and healthy eating to a food desert without grocery stores in North Charleston.
Great food, local artists and artisans, fun activities for kids, honey tasting, the world of bees and beekeeping, blueberry management, and more are part of this all ages festival, 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 Fresh Future Farm and its work.
