About Us

The Nipigon Blueberry Blast festival was established in 2002 under the auspices of the Land of the Nipigon Chamber of Commerce. 

The intention was to establish an event that would:

ñ  have a positive impact on existing local businesses

ñ   make Nipigon a destination during the event

ñ   have a positive impact on community spirit  by involving both interest groups and businesses

ñ  be a morale booster through entertainment, activities, food, fun, music and dance

ñ  encourage participation and interaction of all age groups

ñ  be family-oriented and focused

ñ  encourage awareness of and respect for the environment

ñ  make visitors aware of and attracted to Nipigon

ñ  encourage repeat visits to Nipigon

The Blueberry Blast was turned over to an independent committee of volunteers in 2007, and in 2008 the committee became a sub-committee of the Township of Nipigon recreation committee.

This year (2016) will be the 15th annual Blueberry Blast.
