The Cherry Blossom Festival at Sakura Square is the only festival in the Rocky Mountain region which exclusively features Japanese and Japanese American culture through music, dance, exhibits, arts and crafts and food.
Entry into the festival is FREE and open to the public. Food and merchandise may be purchased with cash or credit card, depending on the vendor. Food and merchandise booths operated by the Temple accept cash only.
The Cherry Blossom Festival is located at Sakura Square in downtown Denver. Most of the activities take place on Lawrence Street between 19th and 20th Streets and inside the Temple at 1947 Lawrence Street.
Because we are concerned for the welfare of your pets, we highly discourage you from bringing them to the festival. The pavement is very hot in June and tends to damage the paws of your furry friends. Pets are not allowed in the Temple with the exception of service animals.
Typically the weather is hot and dry for the festival. Please be sure to drink lots of water to stay hydrated, especially if you are not from the area. We have had a few occasions of high winds and brief rain showers in the past. Please check a weather app or 9News.com for weather information closer to the date of the festival.
