The Marshall County Blueberry Festival may leave Plymouth, as reported by The Elkhart Truth’s reporting partner WNDU.

Festival officials have considered different locations around Marshall County, and some have also taken a field trip to Argos to look at a possible future location for the festival. They have held the event at Centennial Park in Plymouth for 48 years

Officials are concerned that there will be less land for the festival next year because of a project to replace the tennis courts.

But festival board president Dave Caldwell said it’s just “research for the future”.

The festival will still be held Aug. 29 in Plymouth, but the contract with the park department expires at the end of the year.
