Can you find the BIGGEST blueberry of the season? The 1st annual Biggest Blueberry Contest will be held on the Gunflint Trail from Friday July 21- Saturday August 12. Blueberries will be measured by weight and must be picked fresh and not store bought. Even if you don’t have a heavy blueberry, we still encourage you to enter as you could win a prize through our randomly selected drawing.

The three rounds of Blueberry contests will be

Friday July 21 – Saturday July 29 with prize drawings on July 29
Friday July 28 – Saturday August 5 with prize drawings on August 5
Friday August 4 – Saturday August 12 with prize drawings on August 12
