Get Involved

Be part of our community

The National Cherry Festival is a true community event with a long-standing history.

As one of the Hilltops Region’s key events, it is a wonderful opportunity for local businesses, schools, clubs and community organisations to get involved.


A festival of this size cannot run without the continued support of the business community. Businesses benefit in the long term from the arrival of over 20,000 visitors to Young and the Hilltops Region each year during the National Cherry Festival.

Your support through financial sponsorship is vital to the continuation of this highly successful community event. Our sponsorship packages offer many different options suited to all budgets. View the 2017 Sponsorship Prospectus.
