Hilltops Region residents have been invited to join the 2022 National Cherry Festival Queen and King competition.

The competition is a key element of the National Cherry Festival, creating excitement in the community through participation in events held by the entrants.

The Cherry King/Queen competition has been run for the majority of the Festival’s history, evolving in nature over the years while still retaining popular elements.

Entrants must be 18 years or older on July 1, 2022 and reside in the Hilltops region.

During the lead up to the Festival, each entrant is an ambassador for the Festival while fundraising for their chosen local charity or not-for-profit organisation.

Entrants also contribute to the Festival with funds raised being shared 60/40 between their chosen organisation and the National Cherry Festival to ensure the longevity of the event.

Over its history, the Festival and the Cherry King/Queen competition have played an interconnecting role, each relying on the other for continued existence.

Trudi Summerfield, 2021’s Cherry Queen, encouraged anyone, male or female, who was interested to embrace the opportunity to be crowned King or Queen.

An information guide is available from the Young Visitor Information Centre or can be downloaded from nationalcherryfestival.com.au.

Phone Young Visitor Information Centre on 1800 628 233 or email vic@hilltops.nsw.gov.au for more information.
