Leona Valley is well known for its U Pic Cherry orchards. For over 50 years, people have enjoyed picking their own sweet and sour cherries. There are now over 20 orchards, most of which avoid the use of pesticides with some being certified organic. Many of them have picnic areas and sell cherry products. For more information, go to http://cherriesupic.com.
LVIA (Leona Valley Improvement Association) has sponsored an annual Cherry Parade and Festival on the first Saturday of June for 40 years. The Parade features lots of floats with local community queens, horses, and antique cars. Don't miss the deep fried cherry burritos! We also have a cherry pie eating contest and lots of craft vendors.
Want to pick your own cherries from one of our 10 local cherry orchards? Get more information by calling the Cherry Information Hotline (24 hours) at 661-266-7116.
