Warrens, Wisconsin - The "Cranberry Capital of Wisconsin"
Warrens is a village in Monroe County in West Central Wisconsin's Central Plains — the hub of Wisconsin's cranberry growing region.
But don't call them cranberry bogs! The growers prefer to call them marshes.
"Wisconsin's Cranberry Capital."
Home of the world’s largest cranberry festival: The population of the small village of Warrens of less than 400 swells to over 100,000 each September when it hosts the annual Warrens Cranberry Festival. One of the largest such festivals in the country, Cranfest is held annually during the last full weekend of September. The festival includes over 100 farmers' market booths, 350 antique and flea market vendors, 800 arts and craft vendors, and Wisconsin’s largest marching band parade.
