Sakura Matsuri: Cherry Blossom Festival
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Cherry blossoms are at their picturesque peak during this two-day celebration at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, but there's a whole lot more to see than just pink and white petals. Visit a Japanese tea room, peruse an art gallery and shop a mini flea market hawking loot such as mouthwatering Raaka chocolates, wall scrolls and silk wraps. There's also a packed lineup of entertainment including taiko drummers, cosplay actors, samurai sword masters, J-rock bands, stand-up comics and dance parties.
