Young celebrates the National Cherry Festival on the first weekend of December, traditionally at the height of the cherry picking season. This iconic regional produce event showcases the famous Cherry which has been part of the landscape around Young for over 150 years.

Young receives thousands of visitors from Australia and beyond during the festival, providing the opportunity to the community of Young – also known as the Cherry Capital of Australia – to celebrate not only the cherry season and harvest (November-December), but the strong sense of pride that exists within the town.

While the National Cherry Festivals major events were cancelled for 2021, the Cherry Festival Lite took its place. Street performers, buskers and buildings, lit up in vibrant colours made for a wonderful Cherry Festival Lite! We look forward to the future of the National Cherry Festival, and are excited to see you in 2022!
