Polson Cherry Festival Event Information

Out of an abundance of caution and while working with the Lake County Health Department, the difficult decision to cancel 2020’s Main Street Cherry Festival has been made. We sincerely apologize to those who were looking forward to the festival, including the PBC board members. However, we feel this is best for the community, the festival vendors, and our business membership. ~ See you next year.

The Polson Main Street Flathead Cherry Festival is full of fun activities for the whole family from pie-eating contests to pit-spitting. Shop our vendors, and enjoy our local hospitality.

See you on Main Street in 2021!

Cherry Pie-Eating Contest: Like cherry pie? Do you think you can eat more cherry pie at one sitting than anyone else? Come compete and show us your appetite. Check the events schedule for contest times.

Cherry Pit-Spitting:  Your only time to spit on the streets of Polson without penalty.  Let everyone see how far you can spit a cherry pit.  Just show up to enter.  Check the events schedule for contest times.

The above contests take place in front of the Cove Deli and Pizza,  11 3rd Avenue West, just off Main Street.

Exhibits and Montana Made Items: Come see, eat, purchase, or sell an amazing assortment of everything from art, photos, and crafts to foods and treats. Visit our fine vendors and local businesses in 2021 (dates and times to be announced).
