State-by-State Blueberry Festival
Florida’s blueberry season generally starts in March and lasts into April or May. Traditionally, a blueberry festival was held in April to celebrate everyone’s favorite berry, but the 2018 festival was cancelled due to festival organizers needing to organize the festival at a new site. Many other Florida blueberry festivals helped fill in the gaps until 2019’s Florida Blueberry Festival, but we can understand if you are still hungry for more! Try one of these festivals within a day’s drive.
