Held on the second Saturday in June, the Poplarville Blueberry Jubilee is a can’t-miss family festival, attracting nearly 10,000 visitors every year.

Downtown Poplarville transforms into a berry-lover’s paradise, with blocks of vendors, including handmade arts and crafts booths, a 5K run, storytelling, live entertainment (there’s even a puppy pageant!), food and, of course, plenty of blueberries to go around.

With the goal of promoting the blueberry industry in Pearl River County, the Blueberry Jubilee works hard to provide grants for programs and projects in the community.

This year’s festival will be held June 8. Visit blueberryjubilee.org to learn more.
