History of Beaumont & Cherry Valley Lakes

History of the Cherry Valley Festival

The Cherry Valley Festival had its origin in 1914. During 1930, the first Cherry Valley Festival Queen was crowned. The U-Pick Cherry System, where people pick their own cherries, started in 1941 during WWII when fuel shortages made fruit transportation uneconomical. After the war, the U-Pick System of "U-Pick Your Own Cherries" continued as a tradition. A non-profit organization called the Cherry Festival Association was formed and legally chartered in 1952. It incepted an annual program of a carnival, concession stands and an Art and Horse Show.

In 1983, the Cherry Valley Chamber of Commerce united its efforts with the Banning Chamber of Commerce to select and support a Queen and Her Court with the newly combined title of "Miss Banning / Cherry Valley." Each year the "Cherry Queen" reigns during the Cherry Festival.

Mission History

In 1824, Franciscan friars from the San Gabriel Mission near Los Angeles established a mission ranch here and called it San Gorgonio Rancheria. Banning's first permanent landmark, an adobe house, was built in 1854 on land now known as the Gilman Ranch.
