The time is quickly arriving for the 2022 Blueberry Art Festival. This year marks the 41st running of the Blueberry Art Festival. Each year the event draws 30,000 to 40,000 festival-goers across the three-day event. With modifications for health and safety, we anticipate that approximately 240 artists, crafters, and makers are participating in the 2022 event, along with some fantastic food vendors.
We have plenty of returning artists, crafters, and makers, along with some exciting new ones. Whether you are looking for watercolor or acrylic art, pottery, woodcraft, or something unique or unusual you will find it at this year’s festival. We mentioned food. Those sumptuous blueberry pies are back, along with delicious burgers, brats, and pork chops on a stick. Of course, there is seafood and kettle corn, refreshing beverages – did we mention waffles too?
Shop a delightful mix of original art and crafts from over 125 local and regional artists and craftsmen. Select from functional and decorative pottery, hand turned wooden bowls, bead work, paintings, leather and lots more! There will be pony rides and a petting zoo for children and family entertainment by the All American Stunt Dog Challenge. Enjoy live music everyday with Timmy Haus, The Singing Slovenes and new additions. You are sure to find that perfect piece of art for your home or that unique gift for someone special.
