Introducing the 1st annual Nantucket Harvest Fair!

New for 2022, the Nantucket Conservation Foundation's Cranberry Festival has joined forces with the Nantucket Island Fair, to create something that captures the spirit of both events, and brings this important family-friendly celebration back to the "Shoulder Season". These 2 fall fairs are beloved, historic island events, and we are thrilled to be taking it to the next level for this community.

Join us on Saturday, October 1st and Sunday, October 2nd  at the Milestone Cranberry Bogs (220 Milestone Rd) for a weekend of fun, outdoor, events showcasing local agriculture, island growers, and the many parts of this special island community.

Events will include traditional fair activities:

Gertrude’s Harvest Exhibition

cranberry harvest demonstrations

live music

Nanpuppets

a NISHA dog show

hayrides

kettle toss

& so much more for island families to come and enjoy.

Entrance fee will be $25 per car. Walkins are welcome too! The cost is $10 per adult and $5 per child under 14.

For sponsorship opportunities please email Allison Levy at alevy@nantucketconservation.org or call 508-228-2884

In addition to the Fair, school tours of the Milestone Cranberry Bog will be available through the month of October. Please reach out to nfoley@nantucketconservation.org to schedule these for your class. Other events including pop-up cranberry sales are being scheduled.

 

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.
