Music permeates the air of the Festival all day long, whether it is live on stage or strolling through the Arts & Crafts Fair. When evening draws nye, you have an opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy even more music at the Blueberry Jamboree. No we aren't talking about Blueberry Jam but a Wild Blueberry Music Jamboree. A celebration at the end of the long day, reflecting and sharing time with family, friends, and music. The Jamboree is held at Sawmill Creek Park. Parking is available in several locations. Please watch for signs. Concessions are sponsored by the Whitefish Township Emergency Services.
