One of Indiana’s most popular events is the Marshall County Blueberry Festival in Plymouth. Entering its 51 st year, the festival is a four-day long celebration held Labor Day weekend September 1-4, 2017. It’s also the state’s largest, with hundreds of vendors and multiple activities for all ages.

Festival goers can participate in everything from fun runs, athletic competitions, and bicycle cruises. Sit back and enjoy the parade, themed this year “Back Home in Marshall County”, featuring Miss Blueberry, first responder vehicles, floats, and music from local high-school bands. One of the biggest fireworks display in the Midwest will amaze spectators at night. Carnival rides and games, hot air balloons, crafts from all over the country, and entertainment on three stages is only a glimpse of what the festival has to offer. Best of all…the festival itself is free admission.

Of course, we can’t forget the fabulous blueberry; both sweet and tart and available in a wide variety of delectable treats to please all palates. A feast for your eyes and taste buds with cakes, jams, jellies, even ice cream.

Bluebird House shares not only a similar name to the festival, but likewise has a rich history. A completely restored Victorian home, Bluebird House is conveniently located in North Liberty, within a short driving distance to Centennial Park.

A perfect choice for Blueberry Festival lodging, Bluebird House is a charming bed and breakfast available for rent. The entire home, with its upgraded kitchen, rooms, and garden with its lovingly preserved original architectural features, and is at your disposal. Sit out on the porch, fire up the grill, enjoy the hand painted original murals. A peaceful retreat waiting for your return after the excitement of the festival, what better way to unwind and cap off the summer?
