The 27th annual Whitesbog Blueberry Festival will be held 10 a.m.-4 p.m. June 26, rain or shine, at Whitesbog Village in Browns Mills, N.J.
"Admission to the festival is only $8 per carload, and people really take advantage of that," said Susan Burpee Phillips, executive director of the Whitesbog Preservation Trust, the organization that oversees the preservation of Whitesbog and various activities there. The festival is the organization's major fund-raiser.
"There will be 40 handmade crafters, an art exhibit including Pinelands artists, bluegrass music, blueberry baked goods . . . blueberry picking, old-fashioned wagons and history tours, lectures and demonstrations through the grounds [and] 21 buildings in the village," Phillips said.
