A full week of excitement, the Emmett Cherry Festival includes an incredible assortment of entertainment options. From the opening ceremony to the Miss Gem County Outstanding Teen Pageant, the festival brings visitors from near and far to celebrate the abundance of our harvest. Of course, the cherry is the star of the show, with pie eating contests, the Great Cherry Bakeoff, and other fun activities that put this delicious fruit front and center.
