The Cherry Blossom Festival SoCal first started in April of 2002 in Pasadena, CA. It was held at the Pasadena Convention Center, 2 years at Victory Park and 2 years at the Rose Bowl with over 10,000 attendees.
We then moved the festival to the Little Tokyo District of Los Angeles for the next 5 years. We closed the festival in 2011 and had over 60,000 attendees.
We are now looking to re-design and produce the Cherry Blossom Festival SoCal back in Pasadena, CA in 2019. If you are interested in helping to raise the base funds needed - please contact.
The Festival promotes the culture of Americans of Japanese descent.
