The North Carolina Blueberry Festival is a heritage celebration that brings together the community by honoring the historic, economic, and cultural significance of blueberries grown in the southeastern region. Proceeds from the festival are used to provide educational scholarships to students residing in the blueberry-producing counties of Bladen, Duplin, New Hanover, Pender, and Sampson. Further, proceeds are utilized to support academic and sports-related school programs, medical clinics in schools, and other local charitable efforts including Meals on Wheels.

The North Carolina Blueberry Festival Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. More than 100 volunteers worked together to make the festival possible. At the North Carolina Blueberry Festival, you’ll find something for the entire family.
