This even has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival (NCCBF) is one of California’s most prominent celebrations of Asian traditions. Each year, over 220,000 people attend this dazzling display showcasing the color and grace of the Japanese culture and the diversity of the Japanese American Community. Please join us and become a sponsor of this popular Japanese American community event.
All are welcome to join in the festivities as we celebrate Japanese and Japanese American culture in San Francisco’s Japantown! The event is free and open to the public. Vendors will be charging for their food goods and some retail products, and some specialized events will require a fee. The Festival will be held on Post Street between Laguna and Fillmore Streets. There will be food booths, cultural performances, martial arts, live bands, the annual Queen Program, and more. The Grand Parade will be held on the second Sunday of the Festival, beginning at City Hall and concluding in Japantown.
The NCCBF is said to be the second largest festival outside of Washington, D.C. to celebrate the blooming of cherry blossoms; and held at one of three remaining Japantowns in the United States. This two-weekend-long Festival, like the cherry blossom, has come to symbolize spring’s late arrival in the famously fog-shrouded San Francisco.
