America's 25 Best Cherry Blossom Events

The annual arrival of cherry blossoms in Japan is so much more than just a physical sign of springtime. Cherry blossom festivals there offer people an opportunity to stop and sit under the flowers, imploring them to relax and fully embrace the fact that the beauty of the blossoms above is only fleeting. 

But you don’t have to go all the way to Japan to view this rite of spring, because there are plenty of great American cherry blossom festivals that honor the tradition. Cherry blossom festivals in the USA can be found from coast-to-coast, from big cities to small towns and they all have one thing in common: a reverence for the symbolism and the beauty of the cherry blossom. A trip to any of the following cherry blossom festivals is destined to be one of the highlights of your spring.
