I would like to invite companies large and small to join us in this joyous spring celebration! I brought this beautiful age old tradition from Japan to our city 13 years ago and now it has blossomed into Vancouver’s cherished intra-community arts and culture festival annually presenting 22 mostly free and engaging community events to Vancouverites and visitors from all over the world. Our sponsors and community partners take pride in helping the Festival actively engage our communities in the appreciation, celebration and stewardship of the iconic Cherry Blossom, building important social connections and making our communities healthier and happier places to live in. With over 43,000 cherry trees in Vancouver alone, cherry blossom viewing is extremely accessible and a popular outdoor urban sport!
“As a long term sponsor of the VCBF, we have been very pleased with our partnership’s success in growing our firm’s brand awareness as a result of the festival touching so many people’s lives in Vancouver every year.”
