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, 2022 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 support of the community.
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.
VENDORS - applications will be available soon. If you would have questions or would like an application emailed to you when they are available please email Gwen Kishida.
SPONSORS - The Festival relies on the assistance of the community to make the event a success, and recognizes them throughout the festival for their generosity. The annual sponsorship brochure will be available soon. If you have a business or organization that would like to support the 2023 festival please contact Memo Chavez and he will send the sponsorship brochure once it is available. We would like to thank all our past sponsors for their support and contributions over the years.
