2013 Blueberry Festival

The 2013 Blueberry Festival was held on Sunday July 28th (always the last Sunday in July) on the beautiful grounds of Old Austerlitz – Home of the Austerlitz Historical Society.

We LOVE pets! However, our insurance does not allow pets to be brought into the festival. Please make arrangements to leave your pets at home. Thank you for your cooperation.
