Wild Blueberry Weekend

Region: Statewide
Activities: Farm tours, shopping, dining, berry picking, family friendly

Enjoy a weekend dedicated to Maine’s state fruit – the wild blueberry – at the first-ever Wild Blueberry Weekend, taking place August 6-7, 2022. Farms, restaurants, wineries and distilleries from Caribou to Kittery are highlighting this tasty berry for a weekend of family fun.

The wild blueberry, sometimes called the low-bush blueberry, is native to Maine and thrives in its glacier-churned soil and challenging seasons. These hardy little berries are generally smaller than their cultivated high-bush cousins and are more flavorful as well as higher in antioxidants, making it a treat to feel good about.

During this special weekend, wend your way across the state, eating and drinking all things blueberry, like Gelato Fiasco’s Maine Wild Blueberry Crisp Gelato and Maine Wild Blueberry Sorbetto, or stop at the Machias MarketPlace for blueberry soda, frozen organic blueberries, blueberry ice cream, blueberry bakery products, blueberry jam and jelly and even blueberry goat cheese.

Or sip something wild at a Maine brewery or winery, including Ambition Brewing’s Blueberry Cream Ale in Wilton, or A Beer Called Blue at Island Dog Brewing in South Portland.

At Ridgeberry Farm in Appleton learn the harvesting process including hand-raking and mechanical techniques. Owner, John Boyington is one of the few manufacturers left that still handcrafts the rakes used for harvest. Enjoy a 45-minute tour at Worcester’s Wild Blueberries in Orneville Township to see the fields, factory and kitchen where they make wild blueberry products.

Explore the interactive map to find a Wild Blueberry Weekend event near you! And if one weekend isn’t enough (it’s not), check out all the ways you can enjoy and imbibe wild blueberries in Maine throughout the year.
