About National Blueberry Day
When is National Blueberry Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 8
Today is National Blueberry Day, a July 8 holiday. Flavorful blueberries are one of the most popular fruits and the healthiest that you can eat. Just about every other fruit has its day of recognition. Yet somehow Blueberries have not had a day designated in their honor… up until now.
We think it is bizarre, that Blueberries have just now received its fair and just recognition with a special day. In addition to tasting great, Blueberries are loaded with fiber and rich in antioxidants. Blueberries are one of the healthiest fruits you can eat. The most notable health benefits of blueberries include: helping lower cholesterol to promote heart health, reducing the risk of cancer, and can even help to slow the aging process.
Celebrate this very special day, by eating blueberries for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Make plans to incorporate blueberries into your regular menu planning. You can also celebrate National Blueberry Day by planting a couple of blueberry bushes in your yard. How to Grow Blueberry Bushes
Did You Know? Most blueberry bushes require at least two bushes of different varieties, to pollinate and produce berries.

History and Origin of National Blueberry Day
Holiday Insights has created just a handful of days. We created this day, to give recognition to the healthiest fruits you can eat. The date was selected, as this is when blueberries are ripening in the field. This special day was created in 2016.
Neither Congress nor the President of the United States has proclaimed a national day for blueberries. Let’s change that. Write your local congressperson and the President of the U.S. to voice your support for National Blueberry Day.
