The Traverse City Cherry Festival is chock-full of fun and excitement for the entire family. In 2023 the Festival will run from July 1 through the 8th.Thrill-seekers will flock to the midway for rides and attractions. Vendors will serve up favorite food items, including Gibby’s Fries and smoked turkey legs plus a variety of fare from local restaurants. Premier performers take center stage for live concerts.  At the festival, the time is always “ripe” for a really great time. 

How do you top eight days of food, fun and family-friendly activities, and entertainment? With a cherry, of course. After all, this is the National Cherry Festival. Begun in 1925 as the “Blessing of the Blossoms,” the event was a way to celebrate the area’s abundant cherry crop. It’s one of the country’s largest and most popular festivals, drawing over 500,000 people in its eight days.
