40th Annual Northwest Cherry Festival April 26-28, 2019

Head to The Dalles for the 40th Annual Northwest Cherry Festival. A longtime favorite among locals and visitors alike, the festival is set in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge and showcases The Dalles’ deep agricultural heritage and Western roots. The Cherry Festival in 2015 expanded to three days of family-friendly activities and events, and 2019 is going to be even better! The Northwest Cherry Festival takes place in downtown The Dalles from Friday, April 26 through Sunday, April 28, 2019. The Festival includes the Gorge’s largest parade, classic car show, a 10k race, and lots of great local music and bands. There’s also cherry sampling with the Oregon Cherry Growers, craft vendors, agriculture job fair, Cherry Idol, and Carnival. You don’t want to miss the crowning of Cherry Festival Royalty at Mid-Columbia Senior Center’s Breakfast Saturday Morning before the parade! The Dalles has much more to offer though the festival alone could keep you busy.

If you are a Vendor and would like to participate in the 40th Annual Cherry Festival or you would like an entry in the Parade, please contact Camille Terry, [email protected] or call 541-296-2231.
