  • The 17th Annual Nantucket Cranberry Festival will be reimagined for 2021 due to COVID Safety concerns.

    Rather than hold a single event that draws a large crowd to the Milestone Cranberry Bog on a single day, Nantucket Conservation Foundation will be holding a series of events celebrating the Cranberry Harvest throughout the month of October.

    Nantucket Conservation Foundation’s self-proclaimed “Cranberry Month” will kick off on Saturday, October 9th as part of the Sustainable Nantucket Farmer’s Market, where the first batch of the 2021 cranberry harvest will be available for sale, as well as NCF merchandise. Beginning the following week, NCF will have scheduled guided tours through the Milestone Cranberry Bog for residents and visitors alike to learn about the history and current cranberry operations. A self-guided tour on site as well as the ACKTrails mobile app are also available. Special farm to table tours will available for restaurants and grocery retailers. For children, a number of pop up Nanpuppet shows will take place at the Cranberry Bog. In addition, school tours of the Milestone Cranberry Bog will be available. Other events including presentations and pop-up cranberry sales are being scheduled.

    “We are disappointed to not hold the Nantucket Cranberry Festival as we all remember, but are excited for the series of events and collaborations to celebrate the cranberry harvest,” said Cormac Collier, President & CEO of Nantucket Conservation Foundation. “In the interest of the island’s most vulnerable populations, we did not feel that we could hold the traditional Cranberry Festival this year.”

    We hope you have been enjoying the Foundation’s miles of open space and beaches. We have been there for you and we hope you will be there for us. Please show your appreciation with a special summer donation by clicking here.  Thank you for your continued support of the Nantucket Conservation Foundation.

     

    Please keep in mind that this is a working farm and that there is heavy machinery and equipment operating throughout the Milestone Cranberry Bog all day.
