Will the longest Pip Spit record be broken again this year? Who will be the 2019 Cherry Pie Eating Champion? Whose head will hold the Cherry Queen Crown and the big question- how fast and how clean can you pick a lug of Cherries?
There are so many questions, so many answers, and so much fun and entertainment in store at the 2019 National Cherry Festival. We, the organisers of this year’s event – the 70th to date- would love you to come to the festival and we hope you have a blast. We cannot wait for action to start and we hope you will get involved in everything we have planned. Don’t hold back, just go with the flow.
If you can sing then busk, dance to the live music, wonder at the fireworks, join in the parade, marvel at the tattoo. If you love cherries as we do, try your hand at picking your own, or purchase delicious freshly picked and lovingly packed in the carton from orchard stalls. Ditch the car and use our continuous courtesy bus which will pick up on a loop from the Showground, Caravan Park and Library
Don’t forget the Big Breakfast on Sunday morning in Anderson Park. We will see you there with the Bush Poets and the Working Kelpies
