You’re Invited to the 58th Annual Westhaven Wild Blackberry Festival on July 29th
This is a press release from the Westhaven Volunteer Fire Department:
Westhaven, CA- On Sunday, July 29, 2018, the Westhaven Ladies Club in conjunction with the Westhaven Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting the 58th annual Westhaven Wild Blackberry Festival at the Westhaven Fire Hall on 6th Avenue from 10am to 4pm. This is the largest annual fundraiser of the year for the Westhaven Volunteer Fire Department, with proceeds from the event, including the sale of the famous blackberries pies and jams going to the fire department. Westhaven Volunteer Fire Department is an all-volunteer organization that relies on the money generated from this event to operate for the year.
Enjoy live music from local bands all day and purchase one-of-a kind wares and crafts from local vendors from across the county. There will also be activities for the kids and our volunteer firefighters will be on-hand to give tours and answer questions.
In addition to pies and jams, other food for sale includes barbeque, chili and other snacks, as well as soft drinks, beer and wine. As always, all proceeds from the sale of food and drinks goes to the Westhaven Volunteer Fire Department. We’re also selling t-shirts designed by one of the volunteer firefighters; the proceeds from the sale of each shirt going to WVFD.
Each year, the women of the Westhaven Ladies Club generously volunteer their time to bake several hundred pies and jars of jam. Last year, the pies sold out in a matter of hours.
The Westhaven Volunteer Fire Department was formed in 1950 to meet the fire and medical needs of the growing Westhaven community. It currently serves more than 800 properties, including 450 homes. WVFD responds to fire and medical calls.
