Thank you for helping to make the
15th Annual NC Blackberry Festival the "Hottest Little Festival Around."
July 8 & 9, 2016 in Downtown Lenoir, NC was a huge success!
One of the largest events in Historic Downtown Lenoir, the NC Blackberry Festival brought an estimated 15,000 visitors to beautiful Caldwell County. We thank everyone that came out to support this event!
Congratulations to all the Recipe Contest winners and Glow Run participants! Even though the Pre-Heat Party Front Porch Pickin' and BlackBeery Garden was cancelled due to weather conditions Charlie Carpenter still gave a great hometown concert experience, after the storm passed over Lenoir. Click on various pages for results and updates TBA.
On Saturday the sky was blue and the festival carried on normally. From the returning champion in the eating contest, to the sponsors, to the over 200 vendors, volunteers and Tea with the Blackberry Bear Twins.... we at the Caldwell Chamber of Commerce thank everyone that came out to the festival and joined in the fun!
Please support our wonderful sponsors!
