Since the 1930s, the community of Emmett and all of Gem County has gathered each June to celebrate the abundance of our valley. We celebrate with the region’s longest continually running festival, “The Emmett Cherry Festival.”

The traditional Cherry Festival events, concerts and carnival all happen in the Emmett City Park starting on Wednesday and running through Saturday. Other celebrations and events take place throughout the community during the week of the Emmett Cherry Festival.

Families gather, friends reunite and over 50,000 folks get together over the four days for the greatest family-friendly event in Idaho!
Of the many, many things that set the Emmett Cherry
