South Haven, Michigan B&Bs Welcome You to Blueberry Festival!

Get your fill of Michigan-grown blueberries at the 48th National Blueberry Festival in South Haven, August 11-14. This Lake Michigan harbor community is surrounded by so many blueberry plantations, it’s called the World’s Highbush Blueberry Capitol.

The Indians called the blueberry "star fruit" because of the perfect little star at the base of each berry. Today, blueberries are prized as a "super food" with exceptional vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. And are they yummy!

One of just 40 blueberry festivals in the U.S., some 50,000 visitors are expected over the four days to enjoy blueberry pancakes, enter the blueberry cook-off, visit the art show, enjoy the parade and non-stop entertainment — and, of course, bask in the sun on sugar sand beaches and splash among the waves that tickle the shoreline of the only Great Lake that lies totally within the USA.

At the end of the day, South Haven’s Bed and Breakfast Inns will open their doors to those lucky enough to have made reservations. If you want to be among the fortunate, visit all the South Haven-area B&Bs that are members of the Michigan Lake to Lake B&B Association and reserve your pampering stay today.
