FALL CRANBERRY FESTIVALS – A BERRY, BERRY GOOD TIME

Wisconsin CranberriesWisconsin 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.

If you’re busy that weekend, that’s okay. The Eagle River Cranberry Festival and the Stone Lake Cranberry Festival take place the following weekend – October 6 and 7.

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.
