|Welcome to Paradise, Wild Blueberry Capital of Michigan|
Each year, whenever possible, the festival has donated profits back into the local community as a dedication to all the volunteers that participate in this three day event. On April 25, 2018, Wendy Skeans, Wild Blueberry Festival Chairperson, presented Tom McKee, Whitefish Township Community Schools Superintendent, a check for $1,000 to the school's playground renovation project. The Whitefish Township Community Library Director, Jody Halsey accepted funds to purchase a refrigerator to provide chilled snacks for children's programs and classic movie nights. The Wild Blueberry Festival donated to the Paradise Area Chamber of Commerce's Winter Decorations Project used in the business district of Paradise, along M-123.
