Final Cranberry Harvest Festival Kicks Off in Wareham Columbus Day Weekend

WAREHAM – The 15th Annual Cranberry Harvest Festival is coming to Wareham this weekend for the final time.

The festival has provided a great way to learn about the picturesque cranberry while enjoying old-fashioned family fun.

Watch the daily harvest of crimson berries, visit the educational and historical displays, taste the cooking from the area’s finest chefs, listen to live local musicians, and even take a helicopter ride to view the harvest and spectacular landscape.

Returning this year is the opportunity to put on a pair of waders and stand in a bog full of cranberries.

The Cranberry Harvest Festival is sponsored by the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers and Ocean Spray. The two organizations are supplying participants with cooking demonstrations, a demonstration of the wet cranberry harvest, an enormous tent full of juried crafters, food vendors, and paddleboat rides on the Tihonet Pond.

Adult admission is $10 and $5 for senior citizens members of the military. Children under seven years old admitted free.

Don’t miss the Cranberry Harvest Festival on Columbus Day weekend, running from Saturday October 6 through Sunday October 7 at the A.D. Makepeace Co. headquarters on Tihonet Road in Wareham.
