The 2021 West Covina Cherry Blossom Festival will be returning home to the ESGVJCC on Saturday, April 24th from 12 pm - 6 pm as a socially distanced, contactless, drive-through event!

We have completely transformed the event to make it as safe as possible. The event will be open to the public by appointment only, in 30 minute time slots.

Upon entering our parking lot through the west driveway, each vehicle will check in, receive a goodie bag and drive to their assigned parking spot. As they are driving to their spot, they will be able to view the information and craft booths from the safety of their vehicle. While attendees are waiting in their assigned parking spot, the pre-ordered food and craft items will be loaded into their trunks. Food and craft items will be available for pre-order only and must be paid in advance to promote contactless service.

Entertainment which has been previously recorded will be played during the event so attendees can view the performances as they wait for their items. It will also be available on the ESGVJCC YouTube page. Spend the day with your ESGVJCC Family and join us as we celebrate the season of Cherry Blossoms safely!
