In-Person Cherry Blossom Family Celebration

March 25, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm EDT


Join us for our annual celebration of spring and the blooming trees of D.C. Enjoy a taiko drumming performance by Nen Daiko, traditional Japanese dance with Onoe Dance, and break out your best Japanese pop dance moves with Les the DJ. Craft your own cherry blossom tree to take home, make a koinobori kite to fly at the kite festival, or try your hand at an origami Sakura. Explore SAAM’s galleries with a scavenger hunt and enjoy festive treats from a special menu celebrating the cherry blossoms offered by the Courtyard Café.

This program is part of the 2023 National Cherry Blossom Festival.
