Named after moonshiner Amos Owens' corn whiskey-based "Cherry Bounce" moonshine, the Cherry Bounce Festival features art from local and regional artists, live Bluegrass/Americana music, moonshiners and cherry-inspired items by local restaurants and businesses. The festival kicks off on Friday night with a concert at 7 pm; it continues on Saturday with art vendors, live music, food trucks and special discounts/promotions from our Main Street merchants. The Cherry Bounce Festival is held at the Forest City Pavilion on Park Square (POPS) and along historic Main Street in Forest City.
