Cherry Festival in Kerteminde

21-23 July 2017​

Welcome to the Cherry Festival in Kerteminde

The Kerteminde Cherry Festival is launched every year since 2005 on the 3rd weekend of July. The festival offers exciting art, various music - shows, plenty of culinary taste experiences and more exciting entertainment for your senses, all under the motto: "See, listen and taste". The festival takes place in the beautiful and impressive city of Kerteminde, which with its seaport is very charmingly positioned between the fiord and Store Bælt.

A long tradition in 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.
