Blueberry, Blues and Bluegrass Festival at Long Hill United Methodist Church
One of the most anticipated Trumbull summertime events is set to go. The Blueberry, Blues and Bluegrass Festival at Long Hill United Methodist Church will take place Saturday, July 19, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., rain or shine.
The festival features more than 200 blueberry pies made by the women of the church. You can purchase an entire pie, either fresh, baked, or frozen. They will also have pie a-la-mode by the slice, along with their own homemade blueberry muffins, blueberry bread, and blueberry ice cream sundaes.
Tim Quinn, a member of Long Hill United Methodist, spoke to Josh Fisher and Kate Czaplinski on HanRadio.com's Coffee Break, Tuesday, promoting the event. Listen here: http://www.hanradio.com/5180-news/coffee-break/715-coffee-break/
They will also be serving hot dogs, burgers and blueberry-chicken salad sandwiches, along with soda, water and coffee; a free children’s area with a petting zoo, games and face painting. Arts and crafts will also be available for purchase.
This year the festival has been expanded to include more music. The “Blues” will come from saxophonist Chris Coulter of Trumbull. He’s been a top musician in the tri-state area for more than 30 years, and has played with jazz greats such as Clark Terry, Gerry Mulligan, Pepper Adams and many more. He will be on stage from 11 a.m.-noon.
Then the “Bluegrass” portion of the day. XXXIInd Time Out has been around more than a decade with a rocking mix of bluegrass, folk, country and some originals. They’ll be performing from noon-2:30 p.m.
There’s something for everyone from food, to music, to crafts to family fun, so come on out to the Blueberry, Blues and Bluegrass Festival.
