In July of each year the Ebbs Chapel Community Center sponsors the Blackberry Festival. The festival features sales of local craftsmen in fabric and wood; artists in oil, watercolor, and other media; books by Madison County authors; new and old lightly used kitchen and household goods as well as used furniture; and food items such as the blackberry jam, blackberry sauce, and blackberry cobbler that give the festival its name. Music — live or recorded — fills the air. Games or activities for children are provided by volunteers. Breakfast and lunch are served in the lunch room. Residents of the community and their guests gather to exchange the latest news, engage in the gentle commerce that marks community exchange, discuss the fascinating items available from vendors, listen to the music, and share the meals served by volunteers. Proceeds support the Community Center’s activities.
