Sakura Sunday is a day-long outdoor celebration of all things Japanese. Join us in Fairmount Park for an action-packed spring celebration of Japanese arts and culture. The centerpiece of the Festival, Sakura Sunday is a day under the blossoms full of specatacular sights and performances, with plenty of hands-on fun for the whole family. Featuring live music and dance performances, martial arts, cultural demonstrations, arts & crafts, karaoke, and much, much more, Sakura Sunday brings contemporary and modern Japan to Philadelphia.

Sakura Sunday is held at Fairmount Park’s Horticulture Center, home to hundreds of blooming cherry trees; including two from 1926! Bring the family, bring the neighbors, and bring your pets and enjoy a beautiful day of arts and culture beneath the blossoms!
