Don't Miss Japanese Cherry Blossom Events. See Cherry Blossom Page
The Cherry Blossom Festival Committee and the City of Monterey Park are pleased to present the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival in April at Barnes Park, located at 350 S. McPherrin Avenue; Monterey Park, CA. Entry to the Festival is FREE.
Planned and coordinated by community volunteers, the Cherry Blossom Festival strives to provide a cultural arts event that offers a forum for learning, entertainment, fun, and support of community.
So take the time to see, hear, and taste a bit of the Japanese and Japanese American culture through a first-hand experience of watching traditional Japanese dancing, hearing the resounding beats of the taiko drums, observing the mastery and various skills of martial arts, participating in the ancient art of the tea ceremony, or buying hand-made crafts or food with an Asian flair. Other highlights of the Festival include games & crafts for children, and numerous cultural displays.
FOOD - The Festival will feature an international array of food, including many authentic Japanese items. A complete list of foods will be available here in April. Local non-profit groups who wish to sponsor a food booth should contact the coordinator Karen Ogawa (via e-mail).
