20th Annual Cherry Fest

On Aug. 2 from 7 am – 4 pm, the 20th annual Cherry Fest will take place at Lakeside Park on Highway 57 in Jacksonport. The day is packed with fun for the whole family.

Great food including fresh cherries, cherry brats and cherry hamburgers as well as an assortment of cherry desserts will be available. Stroll through the juried arts & crafts fair or experience a horse-drawn wagon ride. Live music will be playing throughout the day under the big tent.

Something new to enjoy is the 1st annual car show on display at the Erskine Rest Area. Tap into your adventurous side for helicopter rides if you want to see beautiful Jacksonport from above. There will also be a penny hunt on the beach for younger children ages 3 – 8 years old. Take a step back in time and tour the Root Cellar in the Erskine Rest Area or check out Jacksonport Family memorabilia. There is something for everyone at Cherry Fest, sponsored by the Jacksonport Historical Society.
