GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The National Blueberry Festival is held every August in South Haven and is one of the country’s oldest continuously-running fruit festivals.

Van Buren County is the nation’s most prolific producer of highbush blueberries, and Michigan produces upward of 100 million pounds each year. Growers, packers, u-picks, specialty equipment, agritourism, cottage industry and more convene right here in Southwest Michigan, and it’s all thanks to the delicious and healthy king of fruits — the almighty blueberry.

Today we have the festival’s chair with us.
