The Cloverdale Blueberry Festival 2009

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

A few weeks ago at the Surrey Fusion Festival I cam across this advertisement for the Cloverdale Blueberry Festival and was immediately captivated by the sight of a giant blueberry riding a hot rod.

Turns out the image serves a dual purpose as the event next weekend will also include the Pacific Highway Show & Shine. On top of that, there will be a Blueberry Arts Festival at the Surrey Museum in Cloverdale, pancake breakfast, BMX stunt showcase, mini golf, talent search, and the obligatory bouncy castle.

Of course there will also be blueberries — in jams, in scones, by the handful, and in pie eating contests. Things kick off on Friday August 7th with the Party in the Parking lot at Lucas’ Place (in the Starbucks Mall) with a BBQ and performance by the Trailer Park Playboys.

Saturday morning at 9am the Pacific Highway Show & Shine begins as well as the rest of the festival at Cloverdale Village Square. The Blueberry Arts Festival at the Surrey Museum is from 10:00am until 4:00pm.

On Sunday August 9th it’s the Party on the Hill at Hillcrest Mall and throughout the entire weekend there will be a trolley service available between events and locations.

    I love blueberries but I can’t wait for the season to be over.. The over use blueberry canons are just being coming background noise to me and the birds.
