The Sakura Matsuri – Japanese Street Festival is the largest one-day celebration of Japanese culture in the United States and is proud to be the grand finale of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Performers and vendors travel from all over the country and the world to Washington, DC to share their love of Japanese culture and traditions with the Festival attendees.
Performers from all over the country and Japan travel to DC to showcase over 20 hours of live music and dance performances across three stages: The Riverfront Stage, the Sakura Stage, and our J-POP stage.
Food! It’s one of the highlights of Sakura Matsuri. With over 30 different stalls offering a range of food it's almost impossible to choose!
