Event Description

With a short blooming season, many believe Cherry Blossoms symbolize the fleeting beauty of life. It is also the national flower of Japan. Join us for a “hanami” or Cherry Blossom viewing as you stroll or picnic in the Upper Meadow.

Travel to Japan through sight, taste and sound with picnic bento (lunch) boxes for sale by Okamoto Kitchen and live performances throughout the afternoon, including Taiko, Ukulele, and Traditional Japanese Dancing.

The Garden opens at 9:00 a.m. and the Cherry Blossom Festival begins at 11:00 a.m. ending at 4:00 p.m.
