The annual Cove Cherry Fair has traditionally been held in mid August. In the early days of the Cherry Fair was to promote the cherry production. As the years have gone by, cherry production has been in the decline. There have been a good number of orchards that are no longer in production. Some orchard owners have evolved into a rent a tree program.
The Cherry Fair events:
The Cherry Fair starts with fun walk in the morning. After that is the pancake breakfast which is held at the Ascension School Camp and Conference Center. The Hot Air Balloon starts around 8:am. The parade generally starts at 10:am and ends at the Cherry Fair. There is live music and many vendors to see. It’s a great way to meet and see people in the community.
