Wisconsin cranberry growers are harvesting their cranberry crop now. When finished, they will collect about 4.5 million barrels of cranberries – 26 cranberries for every man, woman and child in the world.
Wisconsin is the nation’s largest cranberry-producing state – a title we have held for nearly two decades. We take great pride in our 150 year-old cranberry growing heritage and celebrate it every fall.
Please join us in exploring Wisconsin one cranberry festival at a time. It’s a berry, berry good and healthy time for the whole family.
The first of these festivals, the Warrens Cranberry Festival begins on September 28. For three days, festival-goers can tour the cranberry marshes, enjoy a parade through the streets of Warrens and of course, feast on cranberries.
They will be available to eat by the muffin-full and drink by the gallon. Cranberries are just as tasty in a salad or on your favorite meat. You won’t go home hungry or thirsty and your heart will thank you.
We recommend that whichever festival you choose to attend, make it a weekend trip. The fall colors are spectacular, and there’s plenty to see and do.
All you need to bring with you to enjoy a crantastic weekend is a good appetite and an open mind to try every conceivable recipe that contains Wisconsin’s official state fruit – the cranberry.
