National Cherry Festival

Producing 70 to 75 percent of the tart cherries grown in the United States, Michigan farmers harvest most cherries for use in pies, preserves, jellies, juices, dried fruit, and other products.

But come July and early August, the countryside around Traverse City is dotted with stands, markets, and U-pick signs offering ready-to-eat sweet, dark cherries. To celebrate, the National Cherry Festival serves up more than 150 family-fun events and flavorful activities for visitors to enjoy. From the nation's largest all-kids' parade and fireworks to outdoor concerts and midway rides, take your pick! For complete details about the festival, visit www.cherryfestival.org

In addition to the National Cherry Festival, the northern Michigan region is host to a number of festivals throughout the year. Click on one of the below festivals for more details.

  • Annual Empire Asparagus Festival

  • Annual Mesick Mushroom Festival

  • Interlochen Arts Festival

  • Blues, Brew and BBQ
