Machias Wild Blueberry Pre-Festival

Sunday, Aug 11, 2019 at 10:00am

Centre Street Congregational Church
9 Center Street
Machias, ME 04654

Come celebrate the powerful little fruit that put our corner of Downeast Maine on the map. Centre Street Congregational Church, UCC, rolls out the blue carpet each August with crafts, food, entertainment, contests, and all things blueberry. There’s no admission charge.  We are on the Downeast part of Maine’s beautiful, rugged coast, two hours from Bangor, about an hour and a half from Bar Harbor, and a little more than an hour from St. Stephen, New Brunswick.  From whale-watching to lighthouses, from hiking and kayaking to eagles and lobster rolls, our little corner of Maine has a lot to offer!

Then, we will have a Blueberry Drop from the steeple of Centre Street Congregational Church. The Blueberry Drop will happen after the service during coffee fellowship, which will feature blueberry muffins, around 11:15. Everyone is welcome to come to the service or just come watch this exciting event. This heralds the start of the Blueberry Festival week.
