Each year during the third weekend in August Paradise celebrates a part of their local heritage, wild blueberries. Established in 1984, the Wild Blueberry Festival is a celebration that includes an art fair, entertainment, and wonderful local foods.
Wild blueberries still thrive in the area, and some commercial picking continues south and west of Paradise. The low bush varieties, found in open, sunny areas ripen from late July through August. Highbush berries may be found in shade and ripen from late August through September.
Wild blueberry pancakes, pies, muffins, and buckles are some favorites offered at the Festival. Don't miss tasting our wonderful homemade wild blueberry pie!
