A long tradition of cherry-growing
The growing of cherries has long and deep traditions in the Northeastern part of Funen, where the conditions for fruit-growing are especially favourable, because of the many sunny hours and the relatively mild climate. Therefore, it was only natural to pay homage to the sweet and juicy berry with its own festival, which were the actual thoughts behind the festival, when it was arranged the first time in 2005.
