The Warrens Cranberry Festival Is Next Weekend

The Warrens Cranberry Festival will be held in Warrens, WI from Friday September 28 through Sunday September 30, 2012. On Friday morning, the largest cranberry whoopie pie, weighing 1 ton, will be unveiled. The festival includes several markets (flea, farm, arts & crafts), a parade on Sunday at noon, contests, tours of a cranberry marsh on Friday and Saturday, and of course, food with many unique cranberry treats.

To get to the festival, drive to Exit 135 off of Interstate 94, and follow the signs to the festival. If you are traveling from Tomah, the Chamber of Commerce will be operating a shuttle. For more travel information, go here.
