The Blueberry Festival is always held the last Sunday in July – this year the Festival was held on Sunday, July 27, 2008 on the grounds of Old Austerlitz from 9am-4pm.

Early 19th century craft demonstrations & wares, live music and of course – lots of blueberries!

Adults $6.00
Children under 12 free

The event will feature early 19th Century craft demonstrations and wares, antiques, live music and entertainment for children, many different vendors and a variety of foods to feed the masses. There will be blueberries galore, a blueberry recipe contest, and a blueberry pancake breakfast (please note that there is an additional charge for both adults and children).

Blueberry Pancake Breakfast

We all love our pets … but due to insurance concerns we ask that you make arrangements for attending the Blueberry Festival without your pet. Thank you for your consideration in this regard.
