SPECIAL NOTE: The schedule below is actually the 2019 Schedule of Events; it gives you an idea of the depth of our fun. The 2022 schedule will be posted as soon as it is available.

Music permeates the air of the Festival all day long, whether it is live on stage at the community center or entertainers 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, about two miles north of the festival grounds. Parking is available in several locations. Please watch for signs.

Bill Jamerson

Friday Jamboree

Bill Jamerson

6 PM - 9 PM

Bill Jamerson knows a good story when he hears one. For over a decade, the Escanaba, Michigan based historian and songwriter has been sharing stories about America's past with its History through Song in a 12-state region across the Upper Midwest. He developed a love of history at an early age inspired by his grandfather's stories about life in the lumberjack camps and living through The Great Depression.

The Friday Blueberry Jamboree music session starts at 6:00 PM. The stage is just north of the blinking light in Paradise at Sawmill Creek Park. There is a pavillion and a few seats available. Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs; sit back; reflect on the beauty of the day and take in the entertainment as has been done in this region for generations!
