South Haven's Signature Event Since 1963, the National Blueberry Festival began when a group of South Havenites got together to plan a small event to celebrate the blueberry harvest. South Haven is the epicenter of highbush blueberry production and a large part of the economy and cultural heritage is connected with the prominence of agriculture in the region. Combined with the blueberry's charms of being beautiful, delicious and oh-so-healthy, the Blueberry Festival quickly became a very popular and successful event! The early festivals were largely focused on baking competitions, recipe exchanges, and the ever-popular Blueberry Festival parade.
