Experience the Magic of Maine Wild Blueberries – August 6-7, 2022

There’s something wild happening this summer that’s sure to become a beloved Maine tradition: the second annual Wild Blueberry Weekend is set for August 6-7, 2022. The Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine has organized the two-day event to engage locals and visitors in celebrating Maine’s native berry and the local farms and businesses that propel this iconic Maine industry forward.

“Wild Blueberry Weekend is about sharing our iconic local berry and supporting Maine farms and businesses,” said Eric Venturini, Executive Director, The Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine. “

Join us for a weekend where you’ll eat, drink, and experience all things Maine wild blueberries. How wild you get is totally up to you!

During Wild Blueberry Weekend you can:

  • Eat wild blueberry themed menu items at participating establishments across the state.
  • Drink wild blueberry beer, wine, and cocktails at some of Maine’s best breweries, wineries, and restaurants.
  • Experience local wild blueberry farms located in the Midcoast and Downeast to get to know the hardworking people and families that deliver the taste of Maine wild blueberries to consumers around the world.
  • The participating farms will open their doors to the public for free and provide a variety of experiences including harvesting demonstrations, farm tours, hand raking, pick-your own wild blueberries, and sampling/purchasing options for you to bring delicious wild blueberries and products home with you.

“We hope people will come from all over to celebrate Wild Blueberry Weekend and learn why this little berry is such an important part of our state’s culture and heritage. We know once they get a taste of the wild side, they’ll keep a stock of frozen wild blueberries in their freezer all year long,” concluded Venturini.
