Blueberry Summer Festival at Whitesbog Preserve
July 16 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
It is Blueberry Harvest Season in the Birthplace of the Blueberry!
(For real, Elizabeth Coleman White and Dr. Frederick Coville developed the first crop of blueberries here in 1916). Support this wonderful volunteer-led effort to raise awareness and funds for the restoration and preservation of this National Register Historic Village and to promote blueberry and cranberry farms in South Jersey.
The Whitesbog Blueberry Festival is an old fashioned country fair set in the Pine Barrens historic village with museums, historic homes, a General Store, tractor-pulled wagon rides to the blueberry field to pick heirloom berries, local handmade craft vendors, local folk music, with berries for sale from a local blueberry farm.
This event helps support Whitesbog Historic Village and many local businesses, artists, farms, chefs, and proceeds benefit community programs and preservation of the historic village, farm fields, trails, and Elizabeth White Gardens, open to the public for free year-round.
