The Wilton Blueberry Festival may be back for 2021…sort of. In May, the Wilton Blueberry Festival decided to cancel the event for this summer. Then the state of Maine dropped the masking and distancing mandates; the committee agreed to stand by their decision to keep the event canceled.  

I have been to the Wilton Blueberry Festival a few times, and it is a beautiful event. But I understood where they were coming from. Events take planning, commitments from vendors, volunteers, and everyone was just sort of waiting to see what the summer season of 2021 was going to bring us with all of "this."  

So I was delighted when I saw this story in the Sun Journal; Wilton is currently working on a scaled-back version of the Wilton Blueberry Festival. If it all comes together, it will be on the weekend of August 7th and 8th.  

 There is talk of a golf tournament, focus on Wilton-based vendors and businesses, parade, and of course, a blueberry pancake breakfast. 

This way, there is still an event for 2021, and it sets them up to come back at 100% FOR 2022.
