Cranberry Day is one of the many and most important thanksgiving celebrations for the Aquinnah Wampanoag Tribe; it gives the community a chance to give thanks to the creator for this fruit that has always helped the tribe survive.  The celebration, traditionally observed on the second Tuesday of October, includes a grand harvest of the wild cranberry bogs, music, dancing, storytelling and of course a potluck feast with dishes that feature the most recent cranberry yield.

  • Experiment with using blended cranberries that are full of medicinal properties to create your own bath fizz or sugar scrub to ignite your senses in the cafe, 11:00am- 1:00pm.

  • Taste the flavor of this delightful fruit with a very special Cranberry Day Potluck themed Fresh Picks in the café, 11:00am-1:00pm.  Brought to you in part by Eat'n Park Hospitality Group.
