Pop your cherry with this famous cherry festival
Young is a town famous for being the major producer of cherries, wine, fruit, fibre and many more types of food. And it will be silly not to host the National Cherry Festival in this beautiful town of Young!
The Festival is the most popular long running festivals in regional New South Wales and this year it is the celebration of the 65th National Cherry Festival.
The event is for every one of all ages, you can explore the sights and sounds of this scrumptious Festival and with so much going on you will be stuck on what to do next!
Discover the delicious fruit in varying forms and you can even get to pick your own cherries too!
Plenty of farmer markets will be at the event so you can pick up some fresh and tasty produce, check out the busking competition, and do make sure to visit the historic churches and the Lambing Flat Folk Museum, witness sheep shearing, watch the Gold Trail Discovery with the open cinema at the event. These are just a few things to do and see.
Do make sure to get the kids to take a photo with Santa and there will be lolly bags for the little ones to enjoy too...
Live music will be happening throughout the Festival from Jazz bands to the Young Public School band performing.
Of course the main highlight of the Festival is the announcement of the winner for the National Cherry Festival; do not miss out on this!
To conclude the festival there will be a fireworks display.
So gather the family and head down to Young for a very tasty festival not to be missed out on!
