CELEBRATE JAPANESE CULTURE

SAAM CHERRY BLOSSOM CELEBRATION

Join Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Cherry Blossom Festival for a celebration of Japanese culture!

A taiko drumming performance kicks off the day, followed by Japanese music and dance performances, face painting, and cherry-blossom themed crafts. Make your own tatebanko (a Japanese paper diorama) with our friends from the Smithsonian’s Freer|Sackler Asian art museums. Take a scavenger hunt to find spring themed artworks, and more!

Check out the museum store for great DC and Cherry Blossom related products and the Courtyard Café for special Cherry Blossom treats.

The event takes place in the Museum’s beautiful, glass covered Kogod Courtyard. Check out these great images below that highlight the SAAM Cherry Blossom Celebration.
