What’s new for 2022?

While the Festival is thrilled to return to in-person events, health and safety remains the highest priority to ensure an enjoyable experience for all attendees. With that in mind, the Pink Tie Dinner Party will be a largely seated affair for 400 attendees. Reception areas will allow for distancing and tables that usually seat 10 people will seat eight for adequate spacing and comfort. All attendees are required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to attend the event and wear a mask indoors while not actively eating or drinking.

The Pink Tie you know and love returns!

While the format is slightly different, beloved traditions are back in 2022: Attendees are invited to don their finest pink attire to revel together and toast the spring season. The exclusive gala atmosphere with incredible food and fabulous fashion will also include a silent auction and festive entertainment. As in years past, all proceeds still support keeping most National Cherry Blossom Festival events free and open to the public.
