The Cherry Festival is a long‑standing community tradition celebrating the past, present and future. The first festival was held on June 5, 1909, when cherry production was so great that San Leandro was dubbed as “The Cherry City.”

Come out to celebrate the Cherry festival on Saturday, June 2, 2018 (11:00am – 6:00pm).  The parade will start at 10:00am on San Leandro Blvd.

There will be entertainment featuring Goapele on the band stage as well as other bands that I am sure you will enjoy.
