If you’ve been touched by the joy and beauty of cherry blossoms,

please support the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival.

http://givingtuesday.ca/partners/vancouver-cherry-blossom-festival-vcbf

Our mission: To sustain & renew Vancouver’s cherry tree heritage, while educating and actively engaging diverse communities in local arts and culture to celebrate the fragile beauty of the iconic Cherry Blossom.

When 43,000 cherry trees are in bloom and we share programming that brings us together in collective joy, our spirits are lifted and Vancouver is truly transformed into the most beautiful city in the world!

Your donation will help produce 22 high quality, mostly free community events:

  • Cherry Jam Downtown concert under Burrard Skytrain Station’s canopy of blossoms
  • Sakura Days Japan Fair in VanDusen Botanical Garden
  • Sakura Illumination
  • Tree Talks & Walks
  • Bike the Blossoms
  • Haiku Invitational
  • Neighbourhood Maps showing locations where cherry blossoms are in bloom across Metro Vancouver, so you can recognize and learn about your favourite cherry trees and catch the wondrous sights at their prime

As a community innovator in our eleventh season, we are working passionately to leave a legacy spreading the celebration of the cherry blossom festival, which directly benefits 120,000 participants annually and puts smiles on the faces of many, many more. Most importantly, our children will thank you.

“Beauty is the deepest hunger of the soul”
