The 2019 Buffalo Cherry Blossom Festival is already looking like it’s going to be as sensational as ever. Once again, Music is Art is joining the fray, along with festival legacy coordinators Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, Friends of the Japanese Garden of Buffalo, and the The Buffalo History Museum. The four organizations are committed to organizing the celebratory event at the Japanese Gardens in Delaware Park, in hopes of shining a spotlight on this tremendous Buffalo asset.
The free festival not only marks the arrival of spring, it also pays tribute to relationship between Buffalo and its Sister City in Japan – Kanazawa. Over the years, the two cities have come together to share traditions, such as the planting of the Japanese Gardens in Buffalo, and the organizing of the Cherry Blossom Festival, which is set to be held on Saturday, May 4 from 11 AM to 3 PM, and Sunday May 5 from 11am to 3pm. This year’s festival includes:
- Pink boat rides
