Cherry_Blossom_Parade

The National Cherry Blossom Festival isn’t just a celebration of the blossoms—it’s a three-week-long cultural festival held all over the city. Get things started on March 18 at the Pink Tie Party—a fundraiser featuring cocktails (with accompanying attire), cuisine, live music and dancing. The Opening Ceremony, a free event held on March 26 at the Warner Theatre, includes traditional and contemporary performances from American and Japanese artists. Other popular events include the Blossom Kite Festival (TBD), Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival (TBD) and the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade presented by Events DC (April 16), which is followed by the Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival.
