The 21st Annual Cherry Blossom Freedom Walk, an official event of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019. The event will be held at the National Japanese American Memorial to Patriotism During World War II (Intersections of D St., New Jersey and Louisiana Aves., NW), rain or shine.

Check-in begins at 9:00AM. The Nen Daiko drummers of VA will perform at 9:30AM and the program will begin at 10:00AM.

The Cherry Blossom Freedom Walk is a historical and cultural event to raise awareness about the Japanese American experience during World War II and to highlight the vigilant role that American citizens must continue to play in preserving the Constitutional rights of all Americans. Built as a lasting tribute to the more than 33,000 Japanese American soldiers who served with great distinction in the U.S. Military, the Memorial also pays homage to the more than 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry unjustly relocated during World War II. It is also a testament to our nation’s greatness that it does not fear acknowledging its mistakes.
