Overview

Soon after the first whisper of spring arrives in Philadelphia, the multitude of cherry trees in the region bloom with gorgeous blushing cherry blossoms.

Celebrating the near forest of sakura (flowering Japanese cherry trees) in historic Fairmount Park, most of which were first planted in 1926 as a gift from the people of Japan, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival of Greater Philadelphia honors Philadelphia’s traditional and contemporary Japanese cultural connections.

From admiring the fragile pink blossoms of 1,000 cherry trees to participating in origami-making and sushi-making classes, the annual Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates all things Japanese and the delights of spring.
