Chatsworth Cranberry Festival on Oct. 20-21 to Mark Its 35th Year of Celebrating New Jersey’s Cranberry Harvest and Pine Barrens Culture

By Douglas D. Melegari Staff Writer

WOODLAND—An annual celebration of New Jersey’s cranberry harvest—the third largest harvest in the U.S.—will mark its 35th anniversary during the weekend of Oct. 20 and 21 in Chatsworth, the downtown area of Woodland Township. The event, sponsored by the Festival Committee of Chatsworth, in part to raise funds for the renovation of the White Horse Inn at the intersection of County Routes 563 and 532, has become a well-known tribute to the Pine Barrens and local culture. Held rain or shine from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the festival typically draws more than 20,000 spectators over a two-day period. The main attraction of the festival— besides countless offerings of delightful cranberries and assorted baked goods and jellies that contain the fruit—is a diverse showing of many artists and craftsmen, some of whom will demonstrate their crafts, as well as display them for sale. “The crafters handmake their crafts and are juried,” said Melissa Camiscioni, a

Chatsworth resident who became president of the festival committee this year, succeeding the late Lynn E. Giamalis who ran the event for the past 20 years. “The festival provides an excellent opportunity for holiday shopping gifts.” Camiscioni, who joined the festival committee in 1997 and embraces Chatsworth’s small-town feel, said this year’s event will also consist of an expanded food court and see the return of the popular Bullzeye Band. The festival committee’s juried craft and food court vendors’ space rental fees benefit the White Horse Inn, Woodland’s oldest and largest landmark architecturally dated circa 1860 according to a large, blue history sign outside. Remodeling of the inn with vernacular architecture, once called the Shamong Hotel, began with the first festival 35 years ago. The festival committee has been sponsoring the festival since 1997. Prior to the festival’s creation, due to age, the inn with three floors and several fireplaces, had become devoid of character.

remodeling, is now known as “the official carpenter for the White Horse Inn” due to his efforts. The building is now listed on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places, according to the Historic Preservation Office of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The landmark has a historical connection to the local cranberry harvest in Woodland, and neighboring Washington Township, as it once served as the home of Alfred Stevenson who managed the cranberry operation run by the Chatsworth Cranberry Association.

Camiscioni, and assistant Kathy Cantafio, credit not only the festival’s Committee, vendors, sponsors and attendees for making the all-things autumn event a success, but also the New Lisbon Developmental Center’s staff and volunteers who assist with festival cleanup.

The White Horse Inn. A number of vintage photographs of Chatsworth are stored inside the inn, all of which have the ability to enthrall area millennials and centennials. Camiscioni pointed to one that shows what County Route 532, near Chatsworth Lake, used to look like when it was a narrow, single lane dirt road. To help complement the offerings of the festival committee, the Alloway, Stevenson and Worrell families traditionally rent their neighboring land to a variety of vendors, including those who provide kids’ games or sell antiques, clothing and novelties. “Alloway’s Alley,” “Worrell’s Wonders” and “Stevenson’s Strip” will return this year.

Festival Entertainment and Offerings Bullzeye Band

Saturday, October 13, 2018


Bagged leaves and pine needles must be placed at the edge of the road between Saturday and 6:00 a.m. of the first collection date in your area. Please note that if you set your bags at the road prior to Saturday you may be subject to a local fine. Grass and trash must NOT be mixed in with leaves and pine needles.

Please place your bags along the edge of the road upside down, with the tied end facing down. This will help prevent rain from leaking into the bags. Each bag shall weigh 30 lbs or less. We will not collect bags that exceed 30 lbs. Once the leaf collection crew has been through your area they will not be authorized to return to your area for leaf collection. If you miss the collection period in your area, you may deliver your leaves and pine needles to the Public Works Yard. Photo By Chatsworth Cranberry Festival Committee

Tom Baz and renowned Bullzeye Band perform in downtown Chatsworth during the Chatsworth Cranberry Festival. Chatsworth’s own singer, songwriter and guitar player Tom Baz, and his renowned Bullzeye Band, will offer “rocking’ country music” during both days of the Chatsworth Cranberry Festival, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Find them on stage behind the White Horse Inn. Baz was born in 1973, in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Chatsworth. The son of a U.S. Airman and seasoned New York bull rider, Baz was exposed to a diverse music collection from an early age. The music of artists like Elvis Presley, Jim Croce, the Rolling Stones, Don Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Hank

Williams Sr. and Jr., Lynyrd Skynyrd, George Strait and Keith Whitley were staples in the Baz home. Baz attributes his diverse taste in music to his entire family, but mostly to his father’s musical tastes and older brother, who is also a musician and artist. The musical influences do not stop with country though, as Baz’s unique sound also comes from listening to rock bands such as Rush, the Stray Cats, Southern Culture on The Skids and Van Halen. When he is not with his band, Baz performs in acoustic shows—solo—or with percussionist Johnny “Sticks” Anderson.

The final result of the Swiss Dip—Cranberry Style. The tangy red berry, known as the cranberry, has become a popular year-round favorite in households of the Pines. Bobbi Lyons, a member of the festival committee, recommends the following cranberry recipe from the kitchen: Swiss Dip—Cranberry Style To create the Swiss dip, mix the following ingredients together in a dish until they are well blended and then spread the mixture out into an ungreased nine-inch pie plate: • One 8 oz. container soft cream cheese with pineapple • One 1/2 cup of shredded Swiss cheese (6 oz.) • One 1/2 cup of dried cranberries • One tablespoon of grated orange peel • Two tablespoons of apple juice Once the mixture is spread out, preheat

The Cranberry Story

Cranberries harvested near County Route 563. The history of cranberries is older than the recorded history of America. Long before the first European settlers arrived, the Indians not only ate cranberries, but also used them as medicine and clothing dye. The Indians called the red berries “sasemineash” and also “pakimintzen.” The Pilgrims gave this fruit the name “crane berry” because its pink blossom reminded them of the head of a crane, a large wading bird. Over the years its name has been shortened to cranberry. The New Jersey Pinelands is one of the few places where cranberries grow naturally. Cranberries grow on vines which are very close to the ground. They need sandy, acidic

soil which has a high-water table. This wet area is called a bog. In New Jersey, cranberry farming began in 1835, in a bog near Burrs Mills in Burlington County. Many other bogs were soon constructed wherever there was a good source of water. Some of New Jersey’s first cranberry farms are still operated by descendants of the original owners Harvesting in those days was a long, hard job requiring many workers who gathered berries by hand. Later, large wooden scoops were used. Since the 1960s, the wet-picking method has been used. First, the bogs are flooded. Then a machine with a large water reel is

The floating berries are pushed to one side of the bog where a conveyor belt lifts them to a truck. Next, the berries are taken to the sorting house where they are cleaned and sorted. Finally, they are shipped to a processing plant where they are made into the many cranberry products we enjoy, such as cranberry sauce. Actually, it was a cranberry farmer who first made cranberry sauce in New Jersey. In 1917, Elizabeth Lee sold her canned sauce under the name “Bog Sweet.” Later, she joined forces with Marcus Urann of Massachusetts who had started his company

in 1912. Together they formed the company that became known as Ocean Spray. Today, Ocean Spray is the largest cranberry growers’ organization in the U.S. In addition to the original sauce, cranberries are made into relish, jellies, cakes, pies, candy, a variety of juices and even cranberry catsup! The Chatsworth Cranberry Festival is now about to celebrate its 35th year. As part of this festival, there have been contests over the years for the largest cranberry, cranberry floral designs and tasty new recipes. This story was written by the New Jersey Pinelands Commission.
