The 37th Annual Sakura Festival will be at Tuscaloosa River Market on Saturday, March 25th from 9 am to 12 pm.
The Annual Sakura Haiku contest is open to entries online, here! The last day to enter is March 17th. The theme of this year’s Sakura Festival is “Mirai wo hiraku/未来をひらく” or “Renew.”
The spring celebration of Sakura, or cherry blossoms, reminds us of the value of each moment, while the return of spring awakens us to fresh possibilities in life. The theme this year calls upon the very definition of spring! Tuscaloosa’s Annual Sakura Festival provides an opportunity to experience Japanese culture through educational demonstrations, performances, and fun activities for all ages!
