The NC Blackberry Festival offers visitors a full day of crafters, music, food, family fun and BLACKBERRIES! The morning starts off with a group of the cutest little berries at the Blackberry Princess pageant. The premier event at the NC Blackberry Festival is the blackberry-eating contest. Not for the faint at heart, participants compete by eating a quart of cold, sweet berries in the least amount of time. Visitors will be treated to homegrown music on the main stage throughout the day, kicking off with the National Anthem and with special guest Mrs. NC America Maureen MacDonald during the Presentation of Colors. Door prizes from our vendors will be awarded all day. So come on out for a hometown good time at the 7th annual NC Blackberry Festival.
