2013 Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival
March 23, 2013
The 2013 Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival is a family-friendly, daylong celebration of Japanese culture in the heart of Music City.
Cherry blossoms, or sakura, have been a symbol of U.S.-Japan friendship since the Mayor of Tokyo donated 3,000 cherry trees to Washington, D.C. in 1912.
The 2013 Nashville Cherry Blossom festival will begin with the Sakura Walk. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean and the Consul General of Japan at Nashville will be invited to lead the walk. The festival will feature a musical showcase, tea ceremony, origami, Cosplay Contest, Japanese food booths and more!
The Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival is organized by the Consulate-General of Japan, the Japan-America Society of Tennessee, and the Office of Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.
