centennial cherry blossom

100 năm lễ hội hoa anh đào

A Once In A Lifetime Celebration
In 1912, an incredible gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees was bestowed on Washington, DC by Tokyo, Japan. Rooted strongly and surviving outside elements, the trees have withstood the test of time – and nearly a century later, the National Cherry Blossom Festival is preparing for an unprecedented and once-in-a-lifetime celebration.
The epic 5-week spectacular, from March 20 – April 27, 2012, will unify and electrify the city, the nation, and the world. Washington, DC and the region will be abuzz with excitement. Creativity and innovation will permeate signature Festival events elevating them to new heights, and ground-breaking Centennial exhibitions and programming will amaze and delight. Timeless traditions. Rich culture. Renowned artists. World-class performers. The community at its best!
In honor of one of our nation’s most beloved treasures, and a living reminder of international friendship and the beauty of nature, we look forward to celebrating with you the 100th anniversary of the gift of trees – and setting the stage for the next 100 years.  There will be no doubt that spring has sprung. We will paint the  town pink and want you to join us.Cherry blossom festival
