Cherry Blossom Royalty

The Cherry Blossom Festival is thrilled to shape this program on trend with other leaders in our industry. We select ambassadors through a process that allows us to understand the future court in a more personable manner and to crown individuals who are best fit to represent the Cherry Blossom Festival. Applications coming soon.

Community Sanctioned Events

A community sanctioned event is a Cherry Blossom Festival event not produced by its own staff. Instead, it is planned and funded by another group or organization that desires to connect their event with the festival. Stay tuned for our application to be a part of the 2025 Cherry Blossom Festival – The Pinkest Party on Earth!
