Blossom Block Party

Republic Properties Corporation is delighted to announce the second annual Blossom Block Party!

The event is scheduled for April 4th from 12:00 pm – to 3:00 pm at Maryland Linear Park (1292 Maryland Avenue, SW). There will be photo backdrops for selfies and décor to bring the Cherry Blossom Festivities to life. The event will feature live music, face painters, vendors, and food trucks. The food trucks will provide giveaways to the first 200 guests. We will also be raffling off prizes to guests, and the Art In Bloom sculpture reveal will occur at 1:00 pm.


What began with a gift in 1912 at the Tidal Basin is now a four-week extravaganza spanning Washington, DC, and neighboring communities in Maryland and Virginia. From exciting events to convenient hotels, delectable Cherry Picks restaurants, vibrant Art in Bloom installations, and a jaw-dropping City in Bloom to joyful Petal Porches, see the Washington, DC area as you can only see it once a year!
