The Texas Blueberry Festival kicks off Friday night with the Blueberry Bluegrass Concert in the Park, from 6 to 10 p.m. June 10 at Festival Plaza in downtown Nacogdoches. Rex Perry Autoplex is sponsoring the family-friendly event that will feature four musical acts: The Baker Family, The Coleman Brothers and the Lone Star Boys, The Bottom Dollar String Band and Catahoula Drive.
Organizers encourage attendees to bring blankets and lawn chairs. The event is family-friendly, so no coolers or alcohol will be allowed. The concert will feature food vendors, including Texas Custom Catering, Old Souls Food Truck, B’s Barbecue and some local farmer’s market favorites selling homemade items, as well as catfish, barbecue, snowcones, blueberry lemonade and lots of water.
Parking will be available downtown; however, Main and Pilar Streets will be closed due to the Blueberry Festival, so parking with free shuttle service to the concert venue will be available at First Baptist Church, 411 North St. Handicapped parking will be available behind Regions Bank, accessed via S. Mound St. to E. Pilar St. Van and RV parking will be at the Nacogdoches City Garage location at 114 W. Cox St.
