The San Leandro Cherry Festival is a long-standing San Leandro tradition celebrating our past, present and future!  The first Cherry Festival was held in 1909. Many things have changed over the years but one thing that remains the same is the strong sense of community identity and pride the Cherry Festival brings to the San Leandro community!

Over 10,000 people attend the Cherry Festival to partake in food, a beer garden, live entertainment, handmade arts and crafts, a special Kids Zone with rides and games, parade, Farmer’s Market with lots of cherries, community and City resources, and a cherry store selling everything cherry!

Save the date now to come out and experience this wonderful community event. We will see you there!

The City of San Leandro is looking for a variety of community vendors to help make the 2015 Cherry Festival another outstanding success. Please visit the links below to learn more about how your organization can be involved.
