A "Street Fair" Type of Event.
The Blueberry Festival was designed as an annual family fun festival. It gives reference to the Blueberry Industry that once was an important part of our area and culture. The Blueberry Festival also gives our community the opportunity to showcase itself to those from outside our area. It is a "give-back" for all the hard work each and every one of us contributes to making our community what it is.
Over 175 Vendors.
Arts, Crafts, Handmade, Clothing, Jewelry, Accessories, and more. Lots of "Blueberry Goodies". But it is not just Blueberries. We always present a huge variety of delicious foods to be enjoyed from one end of the festival to the other along with the foods of our local eateries. Local Businesses & Organizations are also represented.

Earliest settlers of the area now known as the Town of Wawarsing were, of course, the Indians. In this region of the Hudson Valley, they were the Esopus, a clan of the Lenni-Lenape. The 1663 daily journal of Martin Cregier, a captain in the Dutch army, records a foray to the Indian fort at Wawarsing in an attempt to rescue settlers from Hurley who had been captured about a month earlier. This was probably the white man's first visit to the Town of Wawarsing.
