The Machias Wild Blueberry Festival is great fun for kids. In addition to special activities, the Banner Contest, the Cooking Contest, the Pie-Eating Contest, and the Blueberry Run all include children’s categories. On Friday, enjoy the Children’s Parade and entertainment sponsored by the Washington County Children’s Program. The parade forms at the Machias Valley Baptist Church at 5:45 p.m., and all children are invited to participate. After the parade, there will be free entertainment for children and families at the Performing Arts Center at the University of Maine at Machias. Come celebrate the powerful little fruit that put our corner of Downeast Maine on the map. Centre Street Congregational Church, UCC, rolls out the blue carpet each August with crafts, food, entertainment, contests, and all things blueberry. There’s no admission charge. We are on the Downeast part of Maine’s beautiful, rugged coast, two hours from Bangor, about an hour and a half from Bar Harbor, and a little more than an hour from St. Stephen, New Brunswick. From whale- watching to lighthouses, from hiking and kayaking to eagles and lobster rolls, our little corner of Maine has a lot to offer!
