Montrose’s 39th Annual Blueberry Festival

It's all blueberries all the time in Susquehanna County.

Montrose's 39th Annual Blueberry Festival is for all ages and is family friendly.

The festival is held on Friday, August 3, and Saturday, August 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey highlighted what to expect at the event Friday morning.

Admission is free to get in. Proceeds raised from food, book, silent auctions and The White Elephant Sale, all benefit the Susquehanna County Historical Society and the Free Library Association.

Organizers say that all of the fresh blueberries sold at the event are picked in Susquehanna County.

Various organizations and neighbors make all of the homemade goodies that are sold along with items for the different auction/sales.

The first Blueberry Festival started in August of 1980. It features anything and everything you can imagine involving blueberries from ice cream to pizza and more.
