39th Annual Northwest Cherry Festival

Head to The Dalles for the 39th 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 2018 is going to be even better! The Northwest Cherry Festival takes place in downtown The Dalles from Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29, 2018. 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’re looking for a quaint spot to spend the night, the R&R Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast is charming and serves a complimentary breakfast. For some pre or post festival exercise head out to the Tom McCall Point Trail. The wildflowers will be blooming and hikers can see the Gorge for miles.
