National Cherry Blossom Festival

The DowntownDC Business Improvement District (BID) has partnered with the National Cherry Blossom Festival Inc. since 2001, providing office space and staff support for the city and Downtown’s premier springtime event. The Festival is a refreshing and delightful celebration of the arts, natural beauty, community and gift of cherry trees to D.C. from Japan. Recognizing the Festival’s importance as a cultural asset, the DowntownDC BID works to promote the National Cherry Blossom Festival organization as it continuously advances the Festival’s quality and seeks creative ways to ensure that it remains the nation’s greatest springtime celebration, delivering real economic, social and cultural benefits to all stakeholders, including the city, region and country.
