Attitash Mountain Resort will celebrate summer when it hosts the BLUEBERRYfest in its base area Saturday, August 6th. Attitash gets its name from the region’s Native American Abenaki word for “blueberry”, and early August is generally when New Hampshire’s wild blueberries are in peak season. The BLUEBERRYfest event features a craft fair plus farmers’ market, live music, BBQ-style food, seasonal brews, and blueberry pie baking and pie-eating contests. No admission purchase is necessary to access the vendors or for live music and other events listed below. Use of Attitash summer attractions requires a general admission or ride ticket purchase; rates are available at attitash.com.
The BLUEBERRYfest craft fair and farmer’s market runs from 10am-4pm, with a Cornhole Challenge at 11am, a blue ribbon blueberry pie baking contest at 1pm, a Blueberry pie eating contest at 1:30pm, and live music with the Jonathan Sarty Band from 3-6pm. The festival will also offer BBQ-style food, Seadog Blueberry beer and other tasty blueberry treats all day long. The Mount Washington Children’s Museum has also partnered with Attitash to offer children’s face painting during the afternoon. Winners of the pie-eating, baking contests and Cornhole Challenge will receive prizes from Attitash including summer attractions tickets.
