There are tons of festivals in Texas every time of the year, but our favorite ones are those dedicated to the season's fresh harvests. We simply can't resist some mouthwatering food and drinks carefully crafted with garden-fresh ingredients, and paired with a side of music, parades, and games. If you are also on the lookout for this type of event, Texas' Blueberry Festival is coming near Dallas this summer.
The Texas Blueberry Festival is quite a tradition in Nacogdoches. The cute seasonal event is the place to go this summer if you love the sweet and tangy blue fruit.
There will be blueberry flavored everything and blueberry- themed activities from pet parades, and blueberry photo-ops to delicious food and beverages.
Get ready to go berry picking, and to taste the freshest blueberry cheesecakes, pancakes, pies, and the cutest blue lemonades.
