This two-day event is entirely devoted to celebrating and eating Montana-grown cherries. Compete in a cherry pie-eating contest and see how far you can spit a cherry pit down Main Street. Some of Montana’s best vendors will be selling everything from local art to handmade crafts to delicious food and drink. There will be live music as well as day-long demonstrations and activities at the nearby Miracle of America Museum.
