One of the biggest summer festivals in northern Michigan has been canceled due to coronavirus.

Organizers of the National Cherry Festival announced on Facebook Thursday the 2020 festival will not be held.

“There have been few times in our near 100-year history that the National Cherry Festival has not come together to put on a wonderful celebration of cherries, and in those rare instances it was always to support the community and protect the region. In these unprecedented times, it is for those same reasons, and with heavy hearts, the decision has been made to postpone the National Cherry Festival to July 3rd-10th, 2021” stated Kat Paye, National Cherry Festival Executive Director.
