Event Details

Cherryfest NW, formerly The Bite & Brew of Salem, features live music, 80 microbrews and ciders, a variety of food vendors, a carnival, and a Kid Zone that guests have come to enjoy and expect. Beginning in 2018, the event will also host the city’s largest fireworks show that residents have enjoyed for many years.

There will be exciting new events as well. For example, in partnership with Titanium Racing, the Salem Stars and Stripes Run will include a 5k run with military-style challenges and a ½ mile run for kids 12 and under that will finish at Cherryfest NW. Also on the Fourth of July, crowd favorite, Scott Tom will emcee and host family-friendly games such as hula hoop contests, a water balloon toss, limbo contests, and much more.

There will be a free cornhole competition with the American Cornhole Organization on July 6 with the inaugural NW Cornhole Classic taking place on July 7. Cherryfest NW will also be hosting Greeters, a Salem Chamber event, the morning of July 6.

Take advantage of the warm weather and bring your family, blankets and lawn chairs for a relaxing day in the park and enjoy listening to unforgettable musical performances by some of the northwest’s best talent. Invite your friends down for Salem’s greatest annual reunion!
