Annual National Blueberry Festival (August 6 – 9, 2020)
The Festival is still on, albeit with a reduced footprint and schedule due to COVID-19. For a schedule of events, see www.blueberryfestival.com/schedule-2020.html.
The National Blueberry Festival is not just a celebration of a fruitful harvest. It has evolved into a celebration of South Haven as well. Each year we welcome thousands of visitors to our community — yes, to celebrate that almighty king of berries — the BLUEBERRY but, also to showcase and share everything that is South Haven: Downtown shops, our parks, our beaches, historical sites, the waterfront and our people.
The National Blueberry Festival Welcome Center is located at the corner of Water & Kalamazoo Streets in downtown South Haven. There you will find information, maps, brochures, schedule details and more. Blueberry Central Market is where you can purchase your fresh blueberries, blueberry pies, preserves, plants, and visit assorted vendors at Blueberry Central Market + enjoy live music while you shop! For souvenirs, the National Blueberry Festival T-Shirt Tent/Swag Mobile is the place to shop.
The Blueberry Festival is staged at multiple venues. A complimentary shuttle is available as well as free off-site parking at former Village Market store on M-140. The shuttle runs a continuous loop of the festival with stops at key festival locations.
