When spring comes to the city, thousands of cherry trees show off their amazing pink blossoms for all to see. It's also the time for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival which includes lots of various art events, cherry blossom viewing tours, traditional Japanese festivities, workshops, picnics, and so much more.

Sakura Night is for celebrating special traditional flavours prepared by the top local restaurants. One more nice tradition is the Petal Picnic—a pleasant picnic time under blooming cherry trees. Friends, family, and whole communities come together to enjoy this natural beauty in the middle of Vancouver. Other festivities will show you and let you be a part of numerous Japanese traditions and taste Japanese festival food. Various culinary demonstrations, premium sake tasting, guided walks, haiku readings, and plenty of workshops of calligraphy and origami are all awaiting you here. The Spring Lights Illumination is a celebration of the diverse ethnic communities that live in Vancouver. You can see amazing art presentations and even create your own latern.
