One of Maine’s all-time most beloved, popular, and downright yummy summer events—Winslow’s annual Blueberry Festival—is coming this year on Saturday, August 15, from 8 a.m. to noon, at Winslow Congregational Church, 12 Lithgow Street, Winslow. This year’s festival will be presented as a drive-through, take-out, “Blueberry Fest To-Go” event, with social-distancing protocols observed. Drive-through admission to the festival is FREE.
Over 700 mouth-watering blueberry pies and “all things blueberry” baked goods will be available through convenient drive-through/take-out/to-go service. Blueberry pies may be picked up at the church anytime from 3 to 6 p.m. the previous night (Friday, August 14) or the day of the festival (Saturday the 15th) from 8 a.m. to noon. Attendees may also participate in a 4-Lobster Shore Dinner Raffle in the drive-through, and an auction to be held on the church’s WinslowUCC.org website with a planned start date of Saturday, August 8.
A beloved community favorite since 1972, the Blueberry Festival raises funds to empower the local humanitarian/Christian-service work of Winslow Congregational Church. Celebrating its 192nd birthday this year, the historic church is housed in a building dating from 1796, which has been home to a worshiping congregation since 1828.
Everyone seeking a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the beloved Blueberry Festival in a unique “Blueberry Fest To-Go” way this year is cordially invited to attend. Mark your calendar now!
