Polson Main Street Flathead Cherry Festival

We are announcing our new dates for the Polson Main Street Flathead Cherry Festival: July 31-August 1 2021

This festival is all about cherries, and this year we have shifted dates to when they are at their peak ripeness. Discover the history of cherries and visit Cherry Alley for more information and activities. Shop a curated selection of artists, vendors, and freshly baked treats. Relax and cool down under the tent by the food court and take it all in. Polson is one unique and beautiful place.
