Cherry Blossom Festival
The Cherry Blossom Committee and the City of Monterey Park are delighted to present the return of the annual Cherry Blossom Festival on April 15 & 16, 2023, at Barnes Park, located at 350 S. McPherrin Ave. Entry to the festival is Free.
Planned and coordinated by community volunteers, the Cherry Blossom Festival strives to provide a cultural arts event that offers a forum for learning, entertainment, fun, and community support.
So take the time to see, hear, and taste a bit of the Japanese and Japanese American culture through a first-hand experience of watching traditional Japanese dancing, hearing the resounding beats of the taiko drums, observing the mastery and various skills of martial arts, participating in the ancient art of the tea ceremony, or buying hand-made crafts or food with an Asian flair. Other highlights of the Festival include games & crafts for children and numerous cultural displays.
