The Texas Blueberry Festival is back for its 30th year, and you’ll want to make the trip to Nacogdoches for the delicious sweet treats and fun this festival has to offer. This daylong festival celebrating the local blueberry harvest features live musical entertainment, a car show, fun contests, a bounce park and other fun activities for kids, and of course delicious blueberries sold fresh and cooked into deliciously sweet pastries. The celebration begins the evening of June 7 with the Blueberry Bluegrass Concert and continues June 8 with more festivities. The downtown festival features vendor booths and great food, and there are other events happening all across the town.
