 Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival

April 1, 2024

The Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual spring celebration of Japanese arts and culture organized by the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia (JASGP) that brings tens of thousands of people each year to Fairmount Park.

Featuring various events throughout the city, this yearly festival brings a taste of Japan to Philadelphia and highlights the beauty of Japanese sakura—the flowering cherry trees that brighten city streets and parks with their distinctive pink and white blossoms. The Cherry Blossom Festival programs are scheduled throughout late March and the month of April 2024.

Celebrate traditional and contemporary Japanese culture under the cherry blossom trees of Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park during Sakura Weekend. This free and public festival event will include music and dance performances, activities for the whole family, food vendors, a beer garden, and much more! Over a dozen local food and merchandise vendors including Maido!, Triple Bottom Brewing, Urasenke Philadelphia and more are scheduled to participate.

Sakura Weekend is the festival’s centerpiece event which will take place on Saturday, April 13 from 10AM to 5PM and Sunday, April 14 from 10AM to 4PM at Fairmount Park Horticulture Center and Shofuso Japanese Cultural Center.
