The 26th annual Cranberry Fest in Bordentown, NJ., will now be held on Sunday, Oct 4, 2015 only.

Normally it’s a two-day event to mark the beginning of harvest season for cranberries. 

With rain still possible on Saturday, organizers announced that the first day of the Fest Oct 3 would be cancelled.

To be clear the Cranberry Fest is still on for Sunday,

Sunday, Oct. 4, 201511 a.m. to 5 p.m.Farnsworth Ave., Bordentown, NJ. 

Once home to an Ocean Spray bottling plant, which closed in Aug. 2014, the city continues the long-standing tradition as autumn not only turns thoughts and tastebuds to flavors of pumpkin and apple, but also to New Jersey’s native fruit.

The juried craft fair features over 145 crafters, live music, a dedicated kids’ zone, plus plenty of eats from food vendors and local restaurants along Farnsworth Ave., between Burlington and Park Sts.

Vintage rides are also a highlight of the festival with the Quentin Hausser Memorial Car Show on Saturday and the Isaac Dripps Classic Motorcycle Show on Sunday.

Free parking is available with shuttle buses from three locations – Bordentown’s Elks Lodge (15 Amboy Rd.), Clare Estates (201 Crosswicks St.) and the River Front parking lot.
