You might want any excuse you can get to head over to the stunning Evergreen Brick Works and next weekend, you will have a great one. The Wild Blueberry Festival takes place on Sunday, August 25, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This is the time to enjoy wild blueberries, which are much sweeter than regular blueberries and are harvested in mid-to-late-August. You’ll be able to try different dishes made with wild blueberries from guest vendors at the Sunday Marché.
Some of Toronto’s top bakers will compete in the annual Wild Blueberry Pie Bake-Off and you may be asked to judge the results. Other activities during the festival include a Blueberry Beer & Wine Garden, a blueberry gardening workshop and live music performances in Chimney Court. You’ll also be able to shop for artisanal crafts.
