37th year for Red, White, and Blueberry Festival in Hammonton, NJ
The Red, White, and Blueberry Festival is back for the 37th year in Hammonton, New Jersey is being hosted right off Route 30 at Hammonton High School featuring a full day of family-friendly activities, great food, and of course blueberries!
Hammonton is the home of 56 Blueberry Farms, making New Jersey one of the top six Blueberry Producers in the United States each year. Since the early 20th century, Hammonton has been synonymous with Blueberries so much that former United States President Ronald Reagan in a 1984 campaign speech referenced the Hammonton sign that says “Blueberry Capital of the World".
The activities start on Sunday, June 25th with a Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast at 730am and then the Festival starts at 10 am featuring a Crusin' Classics Car Show, Arts and Crafts, Blueberry Pie Eating Contest, Kiddie Rides, plus plenty of great food to check out. Also, there will be live music courtesy of the band Stealing Savanah and DJ Nicky G performing throughout the day.
There are free parking areas for those attending the Festival at Hammonton Middle School (75 North Liberty Street) and Warren E. Sooy School (601 North Fourth Street) with free Jitney Shuttle service from the free remote parking lots to the hub of the action at Hammonton High School.
I saved the best part of The Red, White, and Blueberry Festival for last: Admission to the all-day event is Free! This is a great day out for everyone with the main activities from 10 am to 4 pm. For more information on the Festival, visit the Greater Hammonton Chamber of Commerce website.
