Cranberry Bog Tour


If you’re heading to the Shady Valley Cranberry Festival on October 12th, visit one of the valley’s own wild cranberry bogs! 

The festival kicks off with a parade at 10 am. The main festival grounds can be found at the Shady Valley Elementary School and features craft vendors, food, live music and children’s activities.

The Nature Conservancy will host free, public cranberry bog tours at Orchard Bog Preserve . Visitors will see cranberries growing both in the wild and in a planted nursery. 

Parking and restroom facilities are available on site.

The festival information booth at the Shady Valley School main grounds will also have bog tour flyers on hand.
