CANCELED: 2020 Cherry Blossom Festival | Japantown

Due to coronavirus concerns this event has been canceled for 2020.

Welcome to the Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival®, one of California’s most prominent celebrations of Asian traditions and the biggest on the West coast.

Since 1968, the Festival serves to cultivate the continued alliance between Japan and the United States using culture as its bridge. Each year, over 220,000 people attend this dazzling display showcasing the vibrant colors and grace of the Japanese culture and the diversity of the Japanese American Community in the festivities as San Francisco’s Japantown celebrates Japanese and Japanese-American culture.

The festival will be held on Post Street between Laguna and Fillmore Streets.
