Letter to the Editor:
We are getting excited about the 40th Annual Blueberry Festival and all of the fun events that are being registered! That being said, we must make an important announcement regarding the availability of a popular event location.
Due to the roadwork and roundabout construction being done on Wellington St./First Ave., the Travel Info Centre and park area will not be easily accessible this summer. Therefore, no events will be hosted at this location during the Blueberry Festival. Instead, we are encouraging event organizers to utilize Farlinger Park (Town Beach) as we have received word that it will be open in time for the Festival. If this location does not work for your event, please reach out to us and we will help you find a location that is available and most suitable for your specific event.
If you have already registered an event to take place at the Travel Information Centre, please let us know of the new location you have selected.
We would also like to remind the community that there are many volunteer opportunities available during this year’s Blueberry Festival! Please consider getting involved in any way that you can. For more information, contact the Blueberry Office at
(807) 737-3227 or email [email protected].
Sincerely, The Blueberry Festival Committee
