48th Annual Cranberry Festival
September 25 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm$138.00
When we think about cranberries we think about Thanksgiving, which happens to be just around the corner. Nothing goes better with Turkey and apple pie than Cranberries. So why not celebrate the Cranberry with a festival and that’s exactly what the folks in Warrens Wisconsin did many years ago. And guess what, The Warrens Cranberry Festival has turned out to be a bigger than life event for the folks in the heart of cranberry country. This is an absolutely must do early fall day trip. Discover the color of fall at the 48th Warrens Cranberry Festival.
Located one hour southeast of Eau Claire and two hours northwest of Madison. The small village of 350 swells to over 100,000 shoppers searching for that unique fine among the 1300 art and craft booths from twenty-six states! This fest is a great way to accomplish all your seasonal decorating ideas or holiday gifts. The flea/antique market area is a stop for the men to pick up new fishing lures, hunting knives and scopes for the fall hunting season.
The Farm Market has a huge selection of all the fall produce apples, gourds, pumpkins, popcorn, Indian corn, with fresh cranberries, juices, salsas, jams/jellies and all the traditional fall veggies. There is even a largest vegetable contest as well as a scarecrow contest along with the biggest cranberry and pumpkin. Check out the photography, quilts, flowers, food demos.
Shoppers state if you cannot find it in Warrens-it’s not available! This festival was credited by USA TODAY as “TOP 10 BEST FALL FESTIVALS”. FORBES.COM covers this festival as being one of “9 U.S FALL FESTIVALS WORTH TRAVELING TO”.
A must do favorite is the Cranberry Bog Tours on Friday and Saturday starting at 8 a.m. follow up with a visit to the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center on Main Street. You may eat your way through the many ethnic food vendors starting out with pancakes and cranberry syrup but don’t forget to leave room for Marshfield’s Sweet Adeline’s Cranberry Cream Puffs!
