Seattle Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival - Expired Event

Location Seattle Center
305 Harrison St
Seattle, WA 98109
April 21, 2017 - April 23, 2017 - CONFIRMED!

From Seattle Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival Website:

The Festival was initiated by a gift of 1,000 cherry trees that were given to Seattle on May 8, 1976, by Japans former Prime Minister, Takeo Miki, in commemoration of Americas 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. People sat on the grass, eating from sack lunches, enjoying traditional Japanese music and dances performed free on a temporary stage.
