The 2017 Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival, celebrating its 50th 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.

The Grand Parade will be held on Sunday, April 16, 2017, beginning at Civic Center, proceeding up Polk to Post Street and ending in Japantown at Post and Fillmore streets.

A number of performers from Japan will also grace us with their presence. Japanese classical (Buyo) and folk dance (Minyo) groups representing the Bay Area will perform throughout the parade route like a myriad of floating butterflies.
