The 2022 Festival is the 110th anniversary of the gift of trees from the Mayor of Tokyo to Washington, DC. The Signature Events you know and love are back in person, along with a wide variety of ways to experience Washington, DC as you can only see it once a year. And if this is your first time at the Festival, this is the year to see it! March 27th at 5:15pm Natalie Redd will take the stage giving you great R&B/Soul and Funk backed by one of DC's baddest bands... X-Factor! Get ready for great music and fun at the National Cherry Blossom Fest!
