MARQUETTE, MI – Preparation is underway for the annual Downtown Marquette Blueberry Festival, set for Friday, July 30 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Downtown Marquette.

Front St. will have sidewalk sales, food vendors, artists, musicians, pony rides, and more. Downtown restaurants will satisfy your cravings for blueberry fare, from blueberry pizza to blueberry beer, while many downtown shops offer will offer “blue” specials.
