San Diego – The Japanese Friendship Garden’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival returns this year as the 2019 Cherry Blossom Week.

During March 18 through March 21, select vendors will be set up throughout the Japanese garden giving guests a sneak peek of what’s to come during the weekend.

During the evening, the Inamori Pavilion will be host to various special ticketed programming that include yozakura (viewing cherry blossoms at night), workshops, and demonstrations!

The Japanese Friendship Garden will bloom into a full festival from March 22 through March 24 with visiting and local merchants offering unique crafts and presents in the upper garden; performances, a beer & sake garden, and tea garden at the Inamori Pavilion; mouth-watering street food in the lower garden courtyard; and an arts & crafts area for children.
