National Cherry Festival is Postponing events to 2021
“There have been few times in our near 100-year history that the National Cherry Festival has not come together to put on a wonderful celebration of cherries, and in those rare instances it was always to support the community and protect the region. In these unprecedented times, it is for those same reasons, and with heavy hearts, the decision has been made to postpone the National Cherry Festival to July 3rd-10th, 2021” stated Kat Paye, National Cherry Festival Executive Director.
The safety and health of our entire community, guests, volunteers, and staff is our first priority and always top of mind when making our decisions. We did not make this decision lightly. At each and every step we took into account not only the time and effort that goes into planning this festival, but also the impact on the economy of our area. However, with the uncertainty of the times, we are unable to be fully confident in the fact that it will be safe to gather and celebrate the first week of July 2020.
“Not only is the Festival a beloved national tradition, it’s a key economic driver for our region. It’s painful to see organizers cancel the 2020 event, but prioritizing the health and safety of festival goers, volunteers and the community is the honorable thing to do”, said Trevor Tkach, President and CEO of Traverse City Tourism. We appreciate the support of local community leaders and organizations, with this difficult decision. We know that it is the correct decision for the community and to ensure the celebration of cherries can go on for the next 100 years.
With this decision made we can pivot our energy to assist the community in its time of need and we urge everyone to do the same. For those who have bought tickets or registered for a race at the 2020 festival, information regarding these purchases will come in the following days. We thank you for your support and patience with us during this difficult time.
For all up to date information follow us on Facebook or go to our website www.cherryfestival.org
In the meantime, stay healthy and eat cherries!

It's Fursday Thursday, and today we'd like you to meet Vanessa!
Vanessa is 2 years old, and has been at the Cherryland Humane Society for 275 days...so she is definitely in need of her forever home. She is a playful kitty! She plays hide & seek, jumps and plays great by herself, but is curious about the world around her. As she came to CHS as a stray, she did test positive for FeLV, feline leukemia, so she does need to be an indoor cat, with no other cat siblings. If you are interested in giving this lovely lil lady a home, please contact CHS 231-946-5116!

BREAKING: Grand Traverse County has declared a stage of emergency.
UPDATE: Grand Traverse County has declared a state of emergency tonight. The emergency declaration allows local agencies to access state and federal resources (such as disaster funding). It also helps local medical agencies procure personal protection equipment. It does not affect travel or business/personal movement any differently than is outlined under the governor’s executive order. The following is a press release from the county explaining the declaration.
“In recognition of the serious pandemic that has stricken our county and the entire United States, Board of Commissioner’s Chairman Robert Hentschel signed a Declaration of Emergency today for all of Grand Traverse County. The Declaration of Emergency is in effect immediately and pursuant to state law will be considered for an extension at the next Board of Commissioners meeting.
Board of Commissioners Chair Robert Hentschel said, ‘Based on conversations with community leaders, we know some citizens are not taking the Governor's Executive Order of Stay Home, Stay Safe seriously. We reaffirm the Governor's message and agree completely. To be successful we need voluntary compliance by our entire Grand Traverse County community. We also anticipate continued and growing supply chain issues and we want to continue to plan, prepare and respond to address that.’
‘Grand Traverse County reaffirms President Donald J. Trump’s and Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s Declarations of Emergency and Executive Orders mandating that we Stay Home, Stay Safe and we encourage everyone to follow them,’ said Chairman Hentschel. Grand Traverse County is seeing positive cases of COVID-19 within the county and would like to use all available resources in an attempt to limit community spread as much as possible. Chairman Hentschel said, ‘We have a large team of experts and community leaders preparing for horrible situations that others in our nation, and worldwide, have already experienced. We are preparing for the worst and simultaneously working to prevent it. We need to prepare, not panic.’
Additionally, like many other jurisdictions, Grand Traverse County is experiencing severe shortages of personal protective equipment for hospitals, medical providers, and first responders as well as supply distribution delays and shortages to local food banks and other critical service non-profit agencies that serve our citizens in need. This declaration makes state and federal resources available to meet these emergent needs.
County officials urge citizens to take the local, state, and national declarations seriously and help end the spread of the life threatening COVID-19 virus as soon as possible.”
