September 7, 8 & 9, 2018

Bandon’s annual harvest festival started in 1947. The festival draws the largest attendance of any Bandon community event. And, 2016 was a record-setting year, with approximately 15,000 residents and visitors in town through the weekend. Cranberry Festival activities, food and vendor market areas are centered in Bandon’s Historic Old Town on the Coquille River waterfront.

“What a charming town . . . to open up and welcome all residents and visitors to celebrate together in a safe and fun environment . . . . The entire weekend was great! … Thank you and the entire chamber for all the work and planning that goes into putting together such a tremendous event. We just came home tonight and are already making plans for next year.

Thank you again!”
