One of central Maine’s most beloved and popular summer events—the annual Blueberry Festival—will dish up its delectable, all-things-blueberry goodness and fun on Saturday, August 10, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Winslow Congregational Church, 12 Lithgow Street, Winslow. Admission to the festival grounds is free.
This year’s Blueberry Festival will kick off with a mouth-watering, all-you-can-eat blueberry pancake breakfast, from 7 to 10 a.m. Festival patrons also will enjoy arts and crafts booths, a lobster shore dinner raffle, a massive yard sale, a silent auction, a blueberry bake shop, a blueberry café, live music from David Deas & Friends, an organ recital, local vendors, an agricultural exhibit featuring goats, a firetruck and police car, and fun-filled kids’ activities. Rounding out the “Yummy Factor” will be a record 425 blueberry pies for sale!
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 191st birthday this year, the historic church is housed in a building dating from 1796, which has been home to a worshipping congregation since 1828.
Everyone seeking a wonderful opportunity to gather and enjoy a treasure trove of “all things blueberry” is cordially invited to attend this year’s Blueberry Festival. For more information, please visit www.WinslowUCC.org.
