Past Cherry Queens

Meet Our National Cherry Festival Queens

For decades we've upheld the tradition of crowning one accomplished, local, young lady as our Cherry Queen. Below we're showcasing each Queen we've had throughout the years. Respectfully, during WWII and the Great Depression the festival took a hiatus, which is why you'll see Queens missing for those years.
