Cherry Blossom Festivals

The most famous way to say yes to spring is by attending The National Cherry Blossom Festival. Held in Washington, D.C., the festival runs March 20 to April 14 with peak bloom dates predicted for April 3-6. Call 1-877-44-BLOOM for more information.

Beyond DC’s big festival, you can see cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s impressive collection of cherry blossoms. At the Sakura Matsuri Festival on April 27-28, you’ll find a celebration of Japanese culture.

For our West Coast cherry blossom lovers, the 16th Annual Cherry Blossom Festival will be held in Monterey Park, California, on April 20-21.
