From Roman conquerors to Greek citizens, from Chinese royalty to, well, everyone in the State of Michigan in June and July, cherries have pleased the palates of food lovers for centuries. And Traverse City, “Cherry Capital of the World,” knows that well. Cherries take center stage at this annual festival, while a 50s-style parade, an art fair, a 5k orchard run, and Weird Al Yankovic (yes, THE Weird Al!) round out the show.

July 4-11, Traverse City, MI.
