The Buffalo Cherry Blossom Festival Music Day

This year’s Buffalo Cherry Blossom is heading to the next level. Thanks to participation by Robby Takac (GooGoo Dolls) and Music is Art, the festival is incorporating a music and art element that is sure to impress visitors. There will also be plenty of other activities at hand, including pink boat rides, and food trucks. 

Join the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, The Buffalo History Museum, The Buffalo Cherry Blossom Festival, and Music is Art, to celebrate a new take on a wonderful tradition – The Buffalo Cherry Blossom Festival Music Day.

The festival continues to gain momentum with each passing year. From the traditional ceremonial Japanese aspects to the modern day cultural components, the event has become a darling of the Buffalo festival scene.
