18th Annual North Carolina Blackberry Festival
Lenoir, North Carolina
In Caldwell County, blackberries are a part of every day life – children beg to go pick from the wild berries lining every bank and mothers take what isn’t eaten during the day for cobblers. Summer fun for all visitors--music, pageant, blackberry eating & recipe contests and children's activities. BAKERS WANTED! You and/or your organization are invited to be a part of our community effort to create the World's Largest Patchwork of Blackberry Cobbler by baking and delivering one or more cobblers to the event. All supplies (berries, flour, sugar, margarine, pan & simple recipe) are provided except one cup of milk and your baking expertise.
