In 1989, Nacogdoches residents Leon and Patsy Hallman coordinated community leaders and volunteers to plan an affordable, family-friendly event that highlights our downtown businesses and attractions, while celebrating and promoting local industry.
As the only state-sanctioned blueberry festival in Texas, this delicious annual event attracts more than 19,000 people to downtown Nacogdoches. It offers a smorgasbord of activities to keep folks entertained all day long.
Activities for blueberry lovers of all ages include a bounce park, petting zoo, make-and-take arts and crafts, a pet parade, "The Big Blue" mural painting, classic car show, Blueberry Hill Soda & Sweet Shoppe, motorcycle show, pie eating contests, washers tournament, and food and arts vendors. Downtown merchants and local businesses offer blueberry sweet specials inspired by the festival. The entire day is a fun, family-oriented event and many of the activities are free of charge.
Experienced and novice cooks submit their best recipes and prettiest plates to compete in blueberry pie and blueberry cupcake contests. Live musical entertainment acoustic folk guitar, country, jazz and soft rock will fill the air from stages located downtown and in Festival Plaza.
