46th Annual Machias Wild Blueberry Festival: August 18, 19, 20, 2023 (rain or shine)

Come celebrate the powerful little fruit that put our corner of Downeast Maine on the map. Centre Street Congregational Church, UCC, rolls out the blue carpet each August with crafts, food, entertainment, contests, and all things blueberry. There’s no admission charge. We are on the Downeast part of Maine’s beautiful, rugged coast, two hours from Bangor, about an hour and a half from Bar Harbor, and a little more than an hour from St. Stephen, New Brunswick. From whale-watching to lighthouses, from hiking and kayaking to eagles and lobster rolls, our little corner of Maine has a lot to offer!

The 2022 Blueberry Festival T-Shirt Design Contest Winner

Paige Speight of Portland, Maine won our hearts with her simple, yet elegant display of our favorite fruit. This design will proudly adorn the 45th Annual Machias Wild Blueberry Festival T-shirts! Thanks to all who entered. It was a tough decision!
