A longtime favorite among locals and visitors alike, the festival is set in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge and showcases The Dalles’ deep agricultural heritage and Western roots. The Northwest Cherry Festival takes place in downtown The Dalles from Friday, July 3rd through Sunday, July 5th, 2020. The Festival includes the Gorge’s largest parade, classic car
After careful consideration of the rapidly changing situation, our Board of Directors and the team at The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce have decided to postpone the 41st Annual Northwest Cherry Festival. At its core, the Northwest Cherry Festival is a celebration of community and at this time we've done everything in our power to protect that community. Even with the precautionary measures, we had planned to ensure adequate sanitation and airflow, the risk is too great to hold it at this time. The festival has been rescheduled to July 3rd-5th, 2020, originally scheduled for April 24th-26th, 2020.
With that news comes the amazing opportunity to partner with Fort Dalles Fourth and combine our two community-driven events! The partnership brings two major events that are truly focused on our amazing community together to combine fireworks, vendors, the Cherry Trail, a parade and more. We are very excited about this partnership and look forward to having both events flourish together as one. #onetownoneteam
