25th Annual Texas Blueberry Festival

The 25th annual Texas Blueberry Festival presented by Brookshire Brothers - is 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, June 14, 2014.  Stay tuned for updates as special activities are announced for our Silver Anniversary festival.

Set  deep in Texas Forest Country in the oldest town in Texas, the Texas Blueberry Festival, presented by Brookshire Brothers, is a delightful day of the America you dreamed still existed. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the most delicious festival in the Lone Star State ­­— a day-long celebration of the annual blueberry harvest.

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.

Visitors from around the country flock to Nacogdoches on the second Saturday of June each year to paint the town blue. The 2014 festival opens early on June 14 with a fresh blueberry pancake breakfast served on the historic downtown square.

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 paintings, a 42 tournament, classic car show, Honda Goldwing motorcycle show, pie eating contests, washers tournament, and food and arts vendors. The festival 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.

Thousands of pounds of fresh blueberries are sold on the historic downtown square. Festival-goers also can catch free shuttles to tour and pick their own blueberries right off the bushes at nearby farms.  

Proceeds from the Texas Blueberry Festival benefit the Nacogdoches County Chamber’s various community and business development programs.
