Among the many charms of a rural lifestyle is Harvest Time. This important season marks the rewards of a year of hard work preparing, planting, tending, and more tending.  The reward of months of toil. Harvest is celebrated when the region's crops come in. There is feasting drawn form the crops of the season and a sense of relief, relaxation and lots of social gathering to share in the delights of another year's accomplishment.

Since the 1930s, the community of Emmett and all of Gem County has gathered each June to celebrate the abundance of our valley.  We celebrate with the region's longest continually running festival "The Emmett Cherry Festival."

The Emmett Cherry Festival is always held during the second full week of June.  The traditional Cherry Festival events, concerts and carnival all happen in the Emmett City Park starting on Wednesday and running through Saturday. Other celebrations and events take place throughout the community during the week of the Emmett Cherry Festival.
