Seattle Cherry Blossom Festival

Come see a variety of Japanese cultural performances!

An Inspiring Cultural Experience

The Festival was initiated by a gift of 1,000 cherry trees that were given to Seattle on May 8, 1976, by Japan’s former Prime Minister, Takeo Miki, in commemoration of America’s bicentennial and the long friendship between the people of Japan and Washington state. Today, the Festival is the largest and oldest of its kind in the Northwest. Hanami, cherry blossom viewing, is a reminder to celebrate life, and the pink petals carried on the breeze at the first Festival engendered that thought. Japanese dances, music, and various cultural displays, including martial arts demonstrations, are just a few of the many events! There is so much going on that everyone will find something to enjoy.


This event is open to UWB and Cascadia students. Intercultural Coordinators will also be providing transportation!
