    August 14, 15, and 16, 2020!

    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 2019 Blueberry Musical: Blueberrries on the Roof

    The harrowing story of a family’s wild blueberry farm threatened by rising sea levels!  How can they go on? Can they save their crop? Will all be lost? Blueberry Faeries and the Machias Tambourine Corp to the rescue.
