The Chatsworth Cranberry Festival is a celebration of New Jersey's cranberry harvest, the 3rd largest in the United States! The Festival a tribute to the Pine Barrens & its culture, especially that of the cranberry farm. The focal point of the Festival is the large field across from the White Horse inn, where many artists & craftsmen will be displaying their art; some will also be demonstrating their crafts as well as offering them for sale. Directly behind the White Horse Inn across Route 563 is a huge outdoor food court with picnic tables; a band provides music all day long.
