Cherry Challenge


In the spirit of the old cherry tree tale, we challenge Alexandria restaurants to a very CHERRY culinary contest!

VISIT participating restaurants and enjoy cherry-themed drinks, starters, entrees and desserts.

VOTE for your favorite cherry challenge item, rating the taste, creativity, and presentation of the dish. Submit your ballot on location.

SHARE your experience by posting pictures of your feast on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with the hashtag #gwcherrychallenge! Winners will be announced on our website!
