The growing of cherries has long and deep traditions in the Northeastern part of Funen, where the conditions for fruit-growing are especially favorable, 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 was the actual thought behind the festival, when it was arranged for the first time in 2005.
The Cherry Festival will fill you with valuable experiences and you will see, why the Kerteminde artists all have immortalized the cherry blossoms in their art. As the main motto of the festival suggests, during The Kerteminde Cherry Festival you can use your tastes to “See, listen and taste”.
Explore the many exciting exhibitions taking place in and around the museums and galleries of Kerteminde. You can also participate in the competition for the cherry image of the year, which will then be used on next year’s Cherry Festival posters.
Throughout the festival, you can listen to an exciting mix of music performed at various locations in Kerteminde.
Taste the delicious red cherries – served by sweet cherry girls. Also, try other quality products that can be found at our grand food market. Also, take a moment to rest your legs in one of Kerteminde’s cozy cafes or excellent restaurants.
