(1) Cherry Blossom Festival

This is most definitely my favorite Spring event in D.C.

I may take several strolls around the Tidal Basin, during peak bloom.

With tons of events, you’ll have plenty of time to check out the festival. Enjoy activities from March 20 – April 17.

About: 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! Stay at partner hotels, dine at Cherry Picks restaurants, and check out Petal Porches and Art in Bloom installations across the city and surrounding areas. Be sure to tag the Festival with #RediscoverSpring.”
