Florida Blueberry Festival

The Florida Blueberry Festival began as an economic development vehicle to bring recognition to the Florida Blueberry Industry and to provide additional funding to local civic groups that hold a 501c designation.

The 2019 Florida Blueberry Festival™ – Kissimmee will be a four-day festival with a minimal entrance fee. The festival provides free music on its amphitheater grounds. It will have a Wine Bar presented by The Island Grove Wine Company Formosa Gardens, a Beer Garden with both craft and domestic choices, a Festival Fare Food court with food concessionaires and an adjoining large picnic table dining area, adorned with colorful umbrellas.  The site will accommodate exhibitor booth spaces; retail & information exhibitors and Fine Arts and Crafts.  Artisans interested in a Juried Art Show (presented by Tampa Bay Magazine) can participate with an opportunity to win $6,000 in cash awards. There are designated areas for the sale of Fresh Florida BlueberriesFresh Blueberry PiesBlueberry Plants, and many other blueberry products, along with a special designated VIP Hospitality Pavilion. The Blueberry Patch Kids Zone will be filled with outdoor inflatable bouncers, bungee jumping, rock climbing and other fun activities for kids of all ages.

At Our New Home
So Why Did Paramount Fencing  Pick The Blueberry Festival?

Well, that is simple.    The Blueberry Festival is a not for profit organization that reinvests proceeds back into their community and local charities.   Some of our Favorite Charities happen to be the main beneficiaries.

Our decision became easier when the most awesome and caring person in the world, Michael Heard, set us down and painted her vision.    That is why, in a collaboration with Alumigaurd Aluminum Fence Products,  Barrette Outdoor Living, and Paramount Fencing teamed up and provided all fencing needs for the new venue.

As of current, all three companies have donated all materials and labor at raw cost, forgone all company profits, and installed over 3/4 of a mile of fence and gates.   The four reason why are listed below.

The Beneficiaries List.
