Cranberrian Fair Harvest Festival
Native to the northwestern portion of Oregon, the cranberry has been a prideful product of the region’s identity since the beginning. The fruit was first harvested by the indigenous population and remains an essential part of the state’s agriculture. Held in the nearby city of Astoria, the Cranberrian Fair Harvest Festival is a celebration of this berry, as well as the heritage and culture surrounding it. The mid-October festival aims to recognize and continue the legacy of this fall harvest, and features art vendors, crafts, and handmade cranberry products of all kind. This event also showcases other turn-of-the-century products and provides demonstrations by blacksmiths, quilters, and rug hookers!
