What to know
The anticipated Blueberry Festival is on Saturday July 7th and we are happy to be working Adam Monaco from All Entertainment, LLC once again. Being a member of Linvilla’s entertainment force for several years now, Adam is no stranger to a Linvilla stage. Whether he is performing with his Philadelphia-based kids band, “The Plants” or hosting Celebrations in our Summer months, he and his crew always go above and beyond.
Wait, there’s more…Silly Joe will be making his 2018 stage debut alongside Adam! Silly Joe entertains audiences with high-energy songs about the everyday lives of kids and families. We know we will be singing, dancing and laughing all day long.
Maggie Pope will be performing folk tunes for children throughout the day and Sustainable Ritchie, from Bear Creek Orchards, is back with another interactive activity to demonstrate the importance of protecting our environment and what we can do to make it better! We have put together a line-up for the day that is full of fun activities, original songs, arts & crafts, learning and dancing!

She will give pointers to anyone who stops by on how to use all of your freshly picked fruits and veggies!
