Any season is a good time to visit Descanso Gardens, a spectacular 150-acre botanical attraction with blooms throughout the year. However these acclaimed gardens truly shine during the Cherry Blossom Festival, which takes place March 4-5 and 11-12.
The prolific pink blooms will fill the sky and cascade on the breeze to the ground, creating a magical setting. But the backdrop of pink blossoms is just the beginning at this popular festival, which also celebrates Japanese culture and art.
Enjoy live music, origami, and Japanese cuisine including tempura and sushi selections. You'll also find interactive activities and live performances throughout both weekends of the event.
Highlights of the 2017 Cherry Blossom Festival include:
- Guided Garden Walks with Naturalist
- Cherry Tree Sale
- Discovery Station Exploration Tables
- Origami Art Making
- Japanese Folk Music by Minyo Station
- Taiko Drumming by On Ensemble
Please note that due to the popularity of this festival, tickets must be purchased in advance online from Descanso Gardens.
