Sakura Matsuri, Cherry Blossom Festival. This year, we will have sixteen visiting Tea Masters and students from Japan who will join us to lead three public tea ceremonies. We will also have dancers visiting us from Japan to demonstrate a typical festival dance called Awa Odori.

We will have three food trucks just outside the Garden, and some great food selections inside the Garden as well. We will also have three live music performances, including the Japanese harp (Koto), the Japanese guitar (Shamisen), and the always-awesome Taiko Drummers.

We will also celebrate the completion of our interior Tea House renovation project. This is an amazing thing, and we have been working on this project for over fifteen years.
