The Traverse City Cherry Festival is THE FESTIVAL in July. More than 500,000 people flock to the the Cherry Festival every year! We love watching the thrilling Thunderbirds soar through the sky, indulging in a delicious pancake breakfast, waving at the passing colorful floats during the famous parades, shopping at the farmers markets, rockin the concerts, cheering on the silly turtle races and of course, enjoying every minute of CHERRY EVERYTHING!
The Cherry Festival is July 4-11, 2020!
We love the huge variety of vendors, souvenir shops and food choices at the Traverse City Cherry Festival. You are bound to find SOMETHING cherry that you love! I grabbed a cute cherry tank top with cherry blossoms and some cherry marinade!
Don't miss touring the NASA trailer to see rocks from space, experience how heavy a can of soda feels on other planets and try working with small objects just how the astronauts would in space!

Don't miss the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City Michigan! We had an absolutely blast this year! Plus it's free! Get there early (by 9:30 a.m.) and you will have no problem parking in the parking structure downtown.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We sat on the beach and watched the beautiful boats, sampled the cherries at the Cherry Connection, enjoyed a gyro, wandered along the marina and explored the NASA exhibit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's plenty of shade trees to sit beneath as you enjoy your cherries, snacks and lunch from the numerous Cherry Festival vendors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cherries #traversecitytourism #traversecity #traversecitymi #traversecitymichigan #traversecitycherryfestival #cherryfestival #michiganfestivals #Michigan #puremichigan #michigantravel #greatlakesstate #michiganstate #travelingmichigan #michiganoverboard #michigan_wanderlust #greatlakesstateofmind #puremittenpride #lovemichigan #michiganders #exploremichigan #greatlakesstate #greatlakesstateofmind #greatlakeslocals #midwestmoment #michiganders #onlyinmichigan #michiganunsalted #puremichiganders
