One event on April 24, 2022 at 10:00 am
Brooksville Main Street is bringing back the Brooksville Blueberry Festival to historic downtown Brooksville April 23-24! Join us for great music, food, and 300+ unique vendors – and it’s FREE!
April 23 and 24, Brooksville celebrates everything blueberry and Brooksville to bring you the 2022 Brooksville Blueberry Festival, sponsored by Florida’s Adventure Coast, Coney Island Drive Inn, Florida Cracker Kitchen, Terlep Chiropractic, Marker 48 Brewing, Great Bay Distributing, Lowman Law Firm, A Ready Roofing, Verizon Wireless Zone, the City of Brooksville, and Hernando County.
Live concerts, more than 300 vendors, an endless supply of blueberry-infused yumminess, and a dedicated Kids Zone will keep visitors celebrating through Brooksville’s beautiful tree line streets.
“There really is something for everyone,” said Natalie Kahler, Brooksville Main Street’s Executive Director. “Everything Blueberry is on Blueberry Lane. Blueberry pies, blueberry cheesecake, blueberry shortcake, blueberry jam, blueberry honey, blueberry plants, fresh-picked blueberries and much more!”
300+ Vendors offer Blueberry-Themed Shopping, Eating and Drinking Opportunities
As you walk through the festival, the pies, jams and smoothies get everyone’s taste buds titillating for the blueberry short cake. Shop at hundreds of vendors offering unusual crafts, technological and agricultural gadgets, fresh-picked blueberries, and live blueberry plants.
Enjoy an impressive collection of paintings, sculptures and photos displayed by artists from near and far, as well as fine crafts, fun festival vendor shopping, and even a hospitality area featuring massages and blueberry wine and a craft beer zone!
The Kids Zone features plenty of hands-on activities for the kiddos. Speaking of children, does your child want to be the next Miss Blueberry Princess or Mister Blueberry Prince? A pageant will be held on Saturday, so contact the Brooksville Main Street office for more information on how to participate.

Hospitality Corner and Craft Beer Garden
Stop by Dr. Terlep’s Hospitality Corner for a relaxing massage. This is the spot to take a break. Great food, ice-cold drinks, and blueberry wine are available to enjoy under the tent. It’s the perfect place for a little relaxation.
Visit the new Craft Beer Garden with several craft beers, including blueberry beer by Marker 48 on South Brooksville Avenue before heading to the concert band shell.
Community Showcase and Free Parking
Street performers, including stilt performers and The Cowboy Circus world’s smallest rodeo will be infused throughout the festival to add to the fun-filled atmosphere.
The Community Showcase will be located south of Broad Street north to Brooksville Avenue. It will incorporate some of our Downtown Business along with many unique local businesses as well as our Community Stage featuring some of Brooksville’s finest talents.
The festival is easy to find at the crossroads of US 41 and State Road 50. Downtown streets will be closed for this fun-filled festival, so come early and plan to stay for the day!
There is free packing on the streets and in several downtown parking lots including the Hernando County Health Department, the Vineyard Church, Miss Kitty’s. There will be paid parking to benefit local nonprofits in some lots also. A shuttle is available throughout the Festival to help visitors get around.
Admission is free for all and so is the entertainment.
A portion of the proceeds from The Brooksville Blueberry Festival go to help the area community, which makes it an even better reason to get out and get BLUE. For more information about this year’s Brooksville Blueberry Festival, please contact Brooksville Main Street at 352.540.6409.
