(Coos Bay) – The Coos Bay Downtown Association welcomes visitors this weekend to the Annual Blackberry Arts Festival in downtown Coos Bay. The festival features juried arts and crafts hand-made by local and regional vendors. It also features delicious blackberry treats by food vendors. A staple at the festival each year is the PEO Blackberry Pies. Festival-goers are encouraged to get their piece of the pie early for the best selection. Whole pies will also be sold. Other food vendors will feature the blackberry as well. This year, several Coos Bay eateries will feature blackberry-inspired dishes. Look for the “berry cool” Blackberry Arts Festival logo in participating business’ windows.
