We Thank You for Your Inquiry...
Cranberry Festival is held Annually the 1st Saturday in October

We invite you to join us in celebrating autumn in beautiful Northwest Wisconsin by attending the 40th Annual Stone Lake Cranberry Festival in beautiful Stone Lake, Wisconsin.  We host over 30,000 guests on this day of festivities and fun. Our volunteer festival staff will be ready to serve you by taking care of all the details of the event.  The cranberry marshes will be ready once again to show off their operations for they have much to boast about.  On the first Saturday in October Over 300 vendors, artisans, crafters, food and hospitality areas will be ready to take good care of you.  
Because of continued support from wonderful people like you, over the last three years alone our organization donated over $100,000 to local area youth and non-profit organizations in Sawyer and Washburn Counties.  Your support made this happen.


Stone Lake Cranberry Festival History       

In 1978 five women were enjoying a glass of wine in a hot tub and came up with an idea to celebrate the harvest of cranberries by organizing a festival.  They hoped that this would also help to stimulate commerce in our small town before the long cold winter months came upon us.  The first festival was in 1978 and it drew an astounding 100 people.  Who would have known that this fun idea would have grown into one of Northwest Wisconsin’s most popular festivals drawing over 30,000 people each year.

Today the festival has grown from a business stimulus idea to a wonderful non-profit charitable organization.  Proceeds from the festival are donated to area not for profit youth programs which may not happen without the aid they receive from the festival.  Other non-profit organizations in our communities also benefit by receiving monies from the Stone Lake Cranberry Festival. 

Come visit us and experience the history of our town by visiting our new Stone Lake Historical Museum located next to the Fire Hall.  The building is the old Stone Lake Train Station which has been beautifully renovated and houses artifacts from our town’s past.  

What a perfect way to begin your day by enjoying an early cranberry pancake breakfast at the Fire Hall and then go next door to visit our new Museum.  Shuttle buses will take you to the main area of the festival when you have completed your breakfast and tour.
