Saturday, October 17, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm – Falmouth Cranberry Harvest & Farm Festival

Come enjoy an old fashioned family celebration of a cranberry bog being wet harvested before your eyes!  On Saturday, October 17 (rain date Sunday, October 18), between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm, come to the  John Parker Bogs (between Route 28 and Sandwich Road) in East Falmouth.  This event is free.  Taste the many homemade cranberry treats – baked goodies, cranberry juices, cranberry breads, jellies, relishes, etc.  See an antique cranberry separator remove the chaff from your own bag of fresh berries.  There will be delicious Portuguese food available under the tent while you listen to the Falmouth Fiddlers, and ’50’s and ’60’s music by The Grand Daddios.  Reminisce with experienced local farmers and hear their stories.  Take a guided bog walk describing historical remnants, bog plants, and animals with an experienced guide. There will be historical displays on cranberry farming and harvesting, demonstrations of old-time crafts such as wool spinning, Nantucket basket making, cranberry wreath making, plus many free children’s activities and cranberry games.  Tables of cranberry soaps, candles and jellies will be available for purchase, and there will be a raffle of special items.  For more information, call 508-457-1809, email, or log on to
