Bandon Cranberry Festival

Posted by OCVA / March 16, 2012

Bandon’s Cranberry Festival is held the second weekend in September. It started in 1946 to showcase the local cranberry industry. Bandon has long been known as the Cranberry Capital of Oregon and new bogs are being added every year. While most of the local berries are made into juice concentrate or frozen, some are sold fresh or dried and can be found in our local stores, while still more are made into wine. The parade is held on Saturday morning and grows larger every year, people come as far away as Humboldt County to participate. After the parade, enjoy the many vendors who sell their unique wares.
