Medicine Walk

The Town of St. George’s hosts an annual “Blueberry Festival” in honour of the “Blueberry”, since the People from this area were once nicknamed “Blueberry Pickers”, now shortened to “Blueberries”.

This nickname was applied to people of Mi’kmaq descent, so the fact that most people in the Bay St. George area considers anyone who is native to St. George’s, a Blueberry, that is a good indication that there must be a lot of people who are of Mi’kmaq descent living in the community of St. George’s.

Our annual “Blueberry Festival” is held on the first weekend of August.  We extend a warm welcome to all visitors to the “Home of the Blueberries”.
