The One Festival You Cannot Miss in Hammonton This Summer
Every South Jersey town has their own unique summer fun each year that sets them apart from the rest. For Hammonton (the Blueberry Capital of the World), it's their annual Red, White and Blueberry Festival, which features, you guessed it... blueberries!
In fact, New Jersey’s blueberry industry tops $80 million, with around 250 farms and nearly 9,000 harvested acres. What you might not know is that 7,500 of those acres are in Hammonton Township! That’s a LOT of blueberries!
Each year, Hammonton Township hosts the annual Red, White & Blueberry Festival, where you can find awesome live music, kiddie rides, delicious food vendors, and a blueberry pie eating contest, of course!
This year you can catch the fun taking place on Sunday, June 24th, at Hammonton High School, located at 566 Old Forks Road.
How can anyone possible miss this? What's YOUR favorite memory from Hammonton's annual festival?
