Coming Up: Alyeska Resort Blueberry Festival
It’s blueberry season!
Spend a day with the family at the Alyeska Resort Blueberry Festival, trying great food, looking at the work of local artisans, playing games, and enjoying live music!
The 12th annual blueberry festival runs August 17th and 18th, and has plenty of things to entertain the whole family. Kids will love getting to pick their own blueberries, as well as entering the pie eating contest, various games, and exploring the resort grounds. For adults, there will be plenty of artisan booths set up with beautiful craftwork – try and get some holiday shopping done – as well as baking contests, hiking, and live music from band Drunken Hearts.
Blueberry pie, blueberry scones, blueberry muffins, blueberry jam…nearly everything you can possibly make with the berries will be represented. See cooking demos on things you can do with your own freshly picked basket of berries. When you’re in need of a break, visit the wine and beer garden – various breweries and vineyards will be offering some delicious drinks for you to try, so it’s a great place to relax and recover from the excitement.
