The National Co-op Festival, Washington, D.C.: September 30 – October 1, 2017
Ocean Spray will harvest excitement at the first ever National Co-op Festival, which will take place on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The festival is hosted by The National Cooperative Business Association Cooperative League of the USA (NCBA CLUSA). As the premier partner of the event, Ocean Spray plans to create a cranberry bog with a half-ton of fresh cranberries, which is guaranteed to immerse visitors in the taste, health, and heritage of the cranberry. Ocean Spray farmers will also be on hand to share the histories of their farms, families and one-of-a-kind cooperative culture.
The Co-op Festival will be a stop on Ocean Spray’s 2017 Bogs Across America tour, which teaches people how cranberries are grown and harvested. The traveling display brings the rich story of the cranberry to hubs throughout the country. This year marks Ocean Spray’s 13th anniversary of the tour.
