It’s two days of music and dance performances, including Taiko drumming, martial arts demonstrations, activities for the kids including a parade, flower arranging, a tea ceremony, and a marketplace for Japanese textiles and gift items.
Sakura Matsuri is this weekend, April 27 and 28.
Advance tickets are required
Get tickets now to celebrate the blossoms and the culture of Japan at the annual Sakura Matsuri cherry blossom festival.
The festival is rain or shine both days, so let’s hope for shine.
More than 200 cherry trees line Cherry Walk and the Cherry Esplanade in the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. When they are in full bloom each spring, it is a fairyland of pink blossoms and green grass.
Take a picnic lunch. Take the subway, which stops at the entrance — IRT #2 or #3 to Eastern Parkway.
