Beginning with the Native American cultivation of the wild blueberry, the blueberry-picking industry has played a significant role in the formation of this area — which is exactly what the Blueberry Festival celebrates. The Blueberry Festival not only celebrates an important industry to the Ellenville area and culture, it’s an opportunity to have fun and give back to the community for all their contributions.
Activities include the blueberry pancake breakfast, a blueberry pie-judging contest, a variety of street vendors, and live entertainment for all ages. Local businesses and organizations are also represented in the celebrations. The festival will also feature an area with kid-friendly activities.
