If you like cranberries, join the Zoological Society on our fall field trip to Warrens, Wis., for the 42nd annual Cranberry Festival. It's one of the best fall festivals in the country, according to National Geographic, FoxNews.com, and U.S. News & World Report. This is also the largest cranberry celebration in the world. There are 850 arts and crafts booths, 350 flea market booths, and 100 farmer's market booths and food courts. One even sells deep-fried cranberries! Learn how cranberries are harvested on guided tours of a cranberry marsh and enjoy entertainment such as a marching band parade. Tours are an additional $6 fee per person. You can sign up for tours at the Municipal Building near the fair entrance. Tours start at 8 a.m. and run until 3:30 p.m. Please note: the festival does not currently rent wheelchairs or scooters; however our buses can accommodate both if you use a wheelchair or scooter.
