Celebrate Spring at New Haven’s Cherry Blossom Festival

One of the best parts of April is the warm weather and seeing all the wonderful colors of nature as flowers start to take bloom around New Haven. In celebration of one of the best parts of spring, 360 State Street residents can join other local New Haven residents by attending the annual Cherry Blossom Festival!

The Cherry Blossom Festival is held each year close by to 360 State Street at Wooster Square in New Haven. The festival begins for its 43rd consecutive year on April 24th kicking off at noon with many fun activities. To get the event off to a fun start, the 18th annual pre- cherry blossom show will take place the preceding day on April 23rd. Nine different musical groups will provide entertainment for the evening including a Brazilian violinist, vocalists, guitarists and more!

Many other events will be taking place during the festival. Guests can listen to more of New Haven’s best musical entertainers will live music also happening at the Cherry Blossom Festival. As new Haven residents explore the square to see the beginnings of the wonderful pink and reds of the cherry blossoms, stop by any of the many booths set up to learn more about the cherry blossoms, the environment and participate in hands on related activities.
