McLoud Blackberry Festival (McLoud)

July 6-7 – Veterans Memorial Park
From mcloudchamber.com: The McLoud Blackberry Festival began in the 1940s as a celebration of the end of harvest season for the local cash farm crop, blackberries. Since harvest season was completed just before July 4th, when a community picnic had been held since the town was founded in 1895, the two were combined to create the annual Blackberry festival. ​While blackberry farming may no longer be the agricultural strength of McLoud, the festival celebrated each year continues to be an exciting event for the town. Events run from 6 to 11 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. Visit mcloudchamber.com for details.
