The Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival is said to be the second largest festival outside of Washington, D.C. to celebrate the blooming of cherry blossoms; and held at one of three remaining Japantowns in the United States.

Every year we are joined by hundreds of performers from both Japan and California to give our thousands of spectators a taste of the Japanese culture.

The first Cherry Blossom Festival took place in April of 1967. It was a time of changes in our society. Young people throughout the United States left home to fight in the Vietnam War. Read more

The 2015 Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival® now celebrating its 48th year, is one of California’s most prominent celebrations of Asian traditions. Each year, over 200,000 people attend this dazzling display showcasing the color and grace of the Japanese culture and the diversity of the Japanese American Community.
