Celebrate the 110th Cherry Festival in Downtown San Leandro on June 1
The 110th Cherry Festival will return to Downtown San Leandro on Saturday, June 1, 2019. As in past years, the festival will begin with a parade along San Leandro Boulevard at 10 AM, featuring local community groups celebrating San Leandro’s past, present and future. The festival will run from 11 AM until 6 PM and includes a cherry farmers’ market, artisans and vendors, live entertainment, food, beer and wine, and an exciting Fun Zone. In a throwback to the 1980s, sharing the headline title this year are, the Jets and Sweet Sensation. Other performers on the all-day main stage line-up include Aki Starr, Aretha Franklin tribute singer Nicole Buttah, and Staircase Spirits.
There will be food and drink aplenty from vendors such as Koolfi Creamery, Funnel Cake Express, Aunt Betty’s Gourmet Corn Dogs, Pineapple Whips, Delicia’s Falafel, Volcano Splash Drinks, Pinx Catering, Uncle Mike’s Giant Badass Sausage, and beer from all three San Leandro breweries, 21st Amendment, Cleophus Quealy, and Drake’s Brewing Company. And as always, there is a cherry pie bake-off contest — visit the Cherry Festival web page for more information.
A bike valet service will be available. Convenient, daily vehicle parking is available at the Downtown Parking Garage located at East 14th Street and Estudillo Avenue, as well as at the San Leandro Tech Campus parking garage located at Parrott Street and San Leandro Boulevard, behind the Downtown San Leandro BART station.
