CHERRY FESTIVAL 2016!
Even though we do not do many tours during Cherry Festival this is a great time to visit Traverse City and enjoy such a wide variety of events going on during this festival!
We’re Sweet on Michigan
The National Cherry Festival, steeped in tradition, resonates Pure Michigan through and through. From bringing ‘pure’ local agriculture to the one of Pure Michigan’s premier destinations; to hosting guests in one of Pure Michigan’s most beautiful beach towns, the Cherry Capital of the World Traverse City, the National Cherry Festival is proud be one of Pure Michigan’s brightest gems.
Over 100 events and activities are totally free. We suggest checking out the event calendar to see if a cost is associated with an event. Concerts, Festival of Races and rides are just a few things you have to pay for.
Go Cherry-Picking During the Festival
Traverse City is the cherry capital of the world for a pretty good reason. Our land is rich and our cherry farms are abundant. With so many farms to choose from, it’s easy to get an authentic cherry orchard experience during your visit and take home fresh cherries that you and your family pick yourself.
Our friends at Taste the Local Difference curated this list of farms that you can visit during the National Cherry Festival to pick cherries from the orchard. It doesn’t get any fresher than this!
