Harvest Festivals

Harvest Festivals from Around the World

    United States of America Harvest Festival

    In the north of America they watch parades and sporting events at Thanksgiving.

    In Massachusetts there is a Cranberry Harvest Festival held annually to celebrate the time of the harvesting of cranberries which started in 1949.

    The founders of the festival are Ellis D. Atwood (also founder of the Edaville Railroad) and Robert Rich (of Ocean Spray Cranberries).

    There are rides through the cranberry bogs of the old Edaville steam train, as well as the cranberry baking and pie-eating contests, the crowning of the Cranberry Queen and performances by strolling musicians dressed as 17th Century sailors singing old ballads and sea chanteys. The best part of the festival is the harvesting of the cranberries, which are a traditional part of the American Thanksgiving feast and Canadian Thanksgiving feast.
