The 129th Annual North San Juan Cherry Festival is Coming Soon!
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Pacific
Event Description

Please join us on June 22, 2024, 10:00am - 5:00pm, at the North San Juan Community Center for the 129th Annual North San Juan Cherry Festival!  It’s a magical day packed full of deeply-rooted, small town, family-friendly fun! The Cherry Festival begins at 10:00AM with a 30-minute local parade; one of the longest running traditions of the Ridge. Remember to arrive early to find a spot to park as Highway 49 will be closed for 30 minutes during the parade. 

Immediately after the parade, The NSJ Community Center is hosting food, fun games, a cake-walk, pie-eating contests, face painting, and local music featuring musicians throughout the region. There will be over 25 Booths including local venders, a psychic, a black-smith, a masseuse, artist, and crafters. This year we are also offering the inaugural Wellness Fair featuring local county and non-profit service providers offering information about the services available for you and your family. 

Let’s not forget there is also a fabulous drawing! Last year, we had over $10,500 in drawing prizes, thanks to over 150 local businesses and individuals. Keep an eye on our (Facebook page for a sneak peak at what is available!) Drawing tickets are only $1 (yup, it’s a good ol’ fashioned drawing) and are available for purchase via electronic, or during the Festival. 

The Cherry Festival drawing is our biggest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds from the drawing are used to support and expand the Center’s community focused programs. This year we are focused on raising funds to continue our EBT Eats Free Tuesday Night Dinner. The grant to fund this wildly successful program which feeds 75-100 people every week, expires on June 30th and we would love to keep the program going.  

If you, your business, or someone you know would like to DONATE A PRIZE  to the drawing, please reach out to Shannon Bratt at
