The Festival provides opportunities for organizations to engage with diverse audiences while supporting the community in both  highly anticipated celebrations and newly created experiences that surprise and delight attendees.

The Festival mission is rooted in tradition and honors the friendship between the United States and Japan through the commemoration of  the 1912 gift of more than 3,000 cherry trees.  This allows for unique and creative cultural programming that sponsors can participate in.  

A multitude of high-visibility marketing opportunities exist, enabling sponsors to gain access to loyal Festival fans and reach new audiences.
