What is the Blueberry Festival?

The Blueberry Festival is a 2-day, family-friendly event held at the historic Burnside Plantation, Bethlehem's very own "farm in the city" located at 1461 Schoenersville Road, Bethlehem, PA 18018.

Known as the Sweetest Festival of the Summer, this weekend-long celebration allows visitors to indulge in everything blueberry!

Join us for live music, kids crafts and activities, live colonial demonstrations, and the best blueberry desserts you've ever had.

Adults can enjoy sampling the Lehigh Valley's beer, mead, wine, and more in the Blueberry Brewery Tent!

Kids will have a blast with pony rides, petting zoo, Read to Dogs program, and lots of games and activities. You'll find local vendors selling amazing food, accessories, trinkets, and more - many handmade right here in the Lehigh Valley.

We can't wait to see you this year, July 20 & 21!
