Occurs Weekly Every: Fri

One 1-hour tour is conducted rain or shine, sponsored by the Manitowish Waters Chamber and Cranberry Growers Association. Tour begins at the M.W. Community Center. Enjoy an educational display, juice and sweetened dried cranberry samples, cranberry industry video, and Q and A session. Then motorcade (in your own vehicles) to the Vilas Cranberry Co. marsh for an up-close look at the marsh -- growing, blooming or being harvested depending on the time of year you visit. Harvest generally runs late-September to early-October, but varies year to year depending on the growing season. Pre-registration not required, all ages welcome. Because a gift shop is situated on the Vilas Cranberry marsh, folks are welcome to visit the shop during regular business hours any day -- a step out the back door offers a view of the marshland -- but no "tours" are offered except for Friday.
