The North Carolina Blackberry Festival is a celebration of blackberries, cobbler, and fun! Held in Lenoir, North Carolina, the festival offers tons of family-friendly events. There’s free music, kid’s activities, and a blackberry-eating contest. We have the Little Miss Blackberry Pageant and delicious blackberry cobbler for sale, while it lasts!
