HELP US SPREAD THE JOY OF SPRING

NATIONAL CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL

Support One of the World's Greatest Celebrations of Spring

The National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC, and celebrates the enduring friendship between the people of the United States and Japan. Today’s Festival now spans four weeks and welcomes more than 1.5 million people to enjoy diverse and creative programming promoting traditional and contemporary arts and culture, natural beauty, and community spirit. Help us keep our events primarily free and open to the public by donating to the Festival!

Cherry Blossom Tree

Help keep the beloved cherry trees blooming each year!

The Trust for the National Mall and the National Cherry Blossom Festival are working together to raise funds to preserve and protect the iconic cherry trees. Damage from weather, flooding, and foot traffic poses an ongoing threat to the trees, but you can help!

The goal is to raise $1000.00 for each of the 3700 cherry trees on the National Mall, which will provide our partners at the National Park Service the resources needed to care for, maintain and replace the trees when needed.  You can make an individual gift or start a crowd-funding team to reach your goal.  Your support is vital to protecting this cherished cultural symbol on the National Mall.  Join the campaign today!
