On May 19, 2019. It’s official – the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Facebook page has declared that “this year’s Festival with its billions of blossoms is now history!” We’ll leave you for the winter, or for a while, with this painting contributed by Vancouver author and artist Michael Kluckner, painted in 1995, from his book Michael Kluckner’s Vancouver. This scene is from the Mt Pleasant neighbourhood.

You can look for all our cultivar locations on the  festival map.

Blossom photos that have been featured here and on the festival blog are being collected in our Blossoms Photo Gallery (you can navigate to it from the About pages). Photo names have the date, location, cultivar and photographer name. The Photo Gallery page also has albums of Favourite Streets and Parks, photos that have appeared on this Blooming Now page from this and previous years.

Festival Favourites in bloom

Some of our festival favourite photo-op locations have been shown here. Red markers on our festival map show all our favourite locations. Have a look at what our scouts have posted in our Neighbourhood Blogs.​​​​

There are probably still a few flowers left on these trees.
