Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival

April 7, 2018 - April 22, 2018

For centuries, Japan has celebrated the return of spring with ohanami​ – parties beneath the blossoming cherry trees with food, drink, and entertainment. Now you can experience this delightful tradition without days of arduous travel. A project of the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival is a celebration not only of these beautiful blossoms, but of Japanese music, art, food, and culture.

Over the course of a week, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates both traditional and contemporary Japan with a variety of events, including demonstrations of martial arts, ikebana flower arranging, as well as live musical and dance performances.

The main event, Sakura Sunday is held at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park and features two stages of performers, arts & crafts, Little Akiba, tours of Shofuso, and much much more. Other major events include our Silent Auction, Japanese Culture Week, and the Cherry Blossom 5K. For more details and events, check our calendar.
