Volunteers are needed in support of the 41st annual Cranberry Fest, Oct. 2-3 in Eagle River.  

“Cranberry Fest is a wonderful family event held in celebration of the number one fruit production in Wisconsin — the cranberry,” said Michelle Williams, event coordinator for the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.  

Cranberry Fest will take place Saturday, Oct. 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“As a communitywide event, volunteers are needed during the entire weekend,” Williams said. “ Activities to get involved in include scooping fresh cranberries, assisting and selling tasty treats in the bakery, helping to sell souvenirs and cranberry food products, setup and cleanup, helping keep the festival grounds clean, being a marsh tour attendant and much more.”

Those interested in volunteering at Cranberry Fest should contact Williams at (715) 479-6400 or events@eagleriver.org.

“It’s the volunteers who really make Cranberry Fest a great time for everyone,”?Williams said.
