Celebrate Japanese culture with the finale of the National Cherry Blossom Festival!

The Sakura Matsuri is a Japanese street festival along Pennsylvania Ave. right after the Cherry Blossom Parade on April 14th.

The 58th annual version will see four stages with performances and demonstrations. Plus lots of Japanese food and sake! That’s a good enough reason to go by itself. See the options to get excited about here.

The full program has yet to be released, but here is an example of the 2017 program guide.

Get your tickets here.

Tickets are $10 in advance (children 12 and under are free).
