Seattle Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival

December 11, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Explore and experience the cultural roots and contemporary influences of Japan through live performances, visual arts, hands-on activities, foods and games including Taiko drumming and artisan demonstrations.

The Festival was founded 40 years ago in appreciation of 1,000 cherry trees gifted to Seattle by Prime Minister Takeo Miki on behalf of the Japanese government in commemoration of the nation’s bicentennial. It is the first ethnic festival to be held at Seattle Center annually and the oldest in the Seattle Center Festál series.

Presented by the Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival Committee.
