The National Cherry Festival in Traverse City holds an annual pancake breakfast where thousands gather for pancakes with cherry covered toppings. The National Cherry Festival pancake breakfast is practically a ritual to the locals and tourists from all across the region and the United States flock to Traverse City for the Cherry Festival, which takes place annually around the 4th of July. There are many other events that take place during the National Cherry festival, which lasts just over one week. There are carnival rides and carnival food to enjoy, a cherry pit spitting content, plenty of cherry products from local vendors, and so much more. Book your hotel early if you plan to attend the cherry festival and want to stay relatively close to the city.
