National Blueberry Month is just another excuse to go berry crazy all over Delco!  From Linvilla's famous Blueberry Festival to some of the berry best blueberry pancakes, waffles and pie you don't have to make at home - we'll all be going blue this month!

On July 8th Linvilla Orchards invites you to pick your own blueberries or scarf down as much their outrageously good fresh-baked blueberry pie as you can eat in 1 to 2 1/2 minutes at the pie-eating contest...either way you'll be in blueberry heaven!

  • The festival runs 8am to 7pm
  • Berry picking starts at 8am.
  • The famous blueberry pie eating contest kicks off at 2pm with several categories for all ages!  The winners in each group get a prize so be sure to fill out a short entry form in person that day starting at noon.

Pie Eating Contest Age Brackets
8 – 9: 10 participants, 1/4 pie, 1 minute
10 – 11: 10 participants, 1/4 pie, 1 minute
12 – 14: 10 participants, 1/4 pie, 1 minute
15 - 17: 9 participants, 1/2 pie, 1.5 minutes

And the prize is a $25 gift certificate for each age bracket winner!

Makin’ Music hosts an afternoon filled with games and activities of every kind! Meet Traveling Train, Dr. Duck, Spider Man, Captain America and their Little One-eyed Yellow Dude and grab an instrument cause everybody 'plays' at Linvilla.  You can also practice your pitching at the Dunk Tank!
