2021 National Cherry Festival Cherry King and Queen Competition

Apr 21, 2021

An invitation is extended to those living in the Hilltops Region to join this year’s National Cherry Festival King and Queen competition.

The competition is a key part of the National Cherry Festival, creating prestige and community participation as part of the region’s major events.

The Cherry King/Queen competition has run over the majority of the festival’s history, changing in nature over the years while still retaining popular elements.

For those wishing to participate, entrants must be 18 years or older on July 1, 2021 and be residing in the Hilltops region. During the lead up to the festival each entrant is an ambassador for the festival, fundraising for their chosen local charity or local not for profit organisation, as well as contributing to the success of the popular annual festival.

Over its long history, the festival and the Cherry King/Queen competition have played an interconnecting role, each relying on the other for continuing existence.

Entrants are formally acknowledged in the festival program as festival sponsors.

The National Cherry Festival Committee invite people from the Hilltops Region interested in entering the competition to collect an information pack from the Young Visitor Information Centre.
