Cherry Pie Bike Ride – Monday, July 1st, 9:00am. Enjoy a very short, slow, and FUN beautiful summer bike ride on the neighborhood streets and trails of Traverse City that will end at the Open Space. Your reward will be a voucher for a free slice of pie from Grand Traverse Pie Company. Details.
Cherry Pie Kids Make and Bake – Monday, July 1st, 10:00am – 4:00pm. Don’t miss this annual tradition! Bring your kids to the Open Space and look for our tent near the marina.
We will hold a session every 30 minutes throughout the day. Please arrive early to register as it’s available on a first come basis. Your child will have fun learning how to make a Cherry Crumb Pie. Let us do the baking and stop by later to pick up your child’s freshly baked pie. Each child will leave with not only a handmade pie to enjoy at the festival or to take home but we also hope they will leave with some happy memories.
A suggested minimum donation of $3.00 per child is encouraged. All proceeds from the Kids Make and Bake will benefit the Traverse Bay Children’s Advocacy Center. TBCAC is a regional response center for the protection and well-being of children. The center provides prevention and multi-disciplinary intervention of child sexual and physical abuse in an environment that is child-sensitive, supportive, and safe.
We invite you to share our love of pie and cherries and learn more about promoting the safety and well-being of our children.
