Just off Milestone Road The Nantucket Conservation Foundation’s Milestone Cranberry Bog (one of the oldest, continually operated farms on the Island) hosts this special event. Visitors can expect to learn about the history of cranberry farming on Nantucket through educational displays and harvesting demonstrations. They can also participate in family activities, sample delectable cranberry treats and other New England classics, or simply enjoy the music and the spectacular autumn scenery. There will be organic Genuine Nantucket Cranberries available for purchase.
The Cranberry Festival is a great family event with activities geared towards kids and adults. So whether you are a history buff interested in learning more about how cranberries have been farmed on the island since 1957, you want to hear some great live music and sample some local food, or you want to meet Nanpuppets & Barnaby Bear, the Cranberry Fest is for you.
