HISTORY: In 1995 Fruitland Township started the first Blueberry Festival and asked Fruitland Evangelical Covenant Church to serve the breakfast. About 300 People were served that first year. Over the years the numbers grew to about 1,000 -1,200 people served for about a 3-4 year time period. In 2009, decided to not continue hosting the Festival. So in 2010 Fruitland Covenant Church decided to take on the task of hosting the Blueberry Fun Festival and moved the location to our church where it is still held today.  Since moving to the church, the Festival has grown, with more offerings, adding a 5K in 2014, and serving just over 1,000 people in 2017.
