Blackberry season celebrated at Shenandoah National Park on July 25

BlackberriesBy Lynn R. Mitchell

It’s blackberry season in Virginia with thickets of the juicy, black fruit ripening in open areas along trails and streams, which means it’s time to join in the summer fun at Skyland Resort.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 25, from 10am until 5pm, when everyone is invited to meet on the lower level area of Skyland to celebrate with blackberry-themed food, live entertainment, dancing, Shenandoah story-telling, children’s crafts, and more (see Blackberry Delight).

Located at Milepost 42 on the Skyline Drive, Skyland’s “Blackberry Delight” is an annual event held each July that celebrates the sweet-tart fruit in all its glory. Skyland chefs create special blackberry-infused dishes such as Blackberry BBQ Pulled Pork, Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich with Blackberry Jalapeño Sauce, Grilled Brat Sandwich with Blackberry Whole Grain Mustard and Caramelized Onions, Blackberry Cobbler a la Mode, Blackberry Ice Cream, Blackberry Short Cake, Blackberry Lemonade, and Blackberry Wine and Beer.

Here is the 2015 Blackberry Delight Menu.

It promises to be a fun-filled day for young and young-at-heart on Saturday, July 25, in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.
