Cherry Fair kicks off with a Pancake breakfast and Fun Run/Walk, followed by an afternoon filled with live music, and fun and games for the whole family. We have Cherry Pit-Spitting, Polite Pie Eating (pinkies out), and Hands-free Pie-Eating contests for prizes, and old-fashioned just-for-fun games include water balloon tosses, 3-legged races, human wheelbarrow and cherry-carry relays, plus a few new crazy competitions. The Hog Wild Train, a bouncy house, Fire Department bubbles, and kids’ crafts keep children of all ages entertained all afternoon.
Music on the main stage includes a mix of Americana, folk, blues, soul, and rock from local groups, and for the 21-and-over crowd, the Side A Brewing beer garden serve craft brews on tap.
Over 40 artisans, artists, crafters, growers, and chefs give fair-goers an early start on holiday
shopping with handmade, homemade, and locally produced goods, as well as plenty of good food and
cool refreshments. A Quilt Show includes a raffle for two handmade quilts, with proceeds going to local projects, charities, community groups, and clubs.
After the daytime fair, the Cove Drive-In hosts a ring-toss tourney and karaoke, followed by more live local music.
