The 38th Annual Sakura Festival will be at the Warner Transportation Museum on Saturday, March 23rd from 11 am to 2 pm.


The Annual Sakura Haiku contest is open to entries online, here! The last day to enter is March 15th. Winners of the Haiku Contest will be announced at the festival and certificates will be mailed out at a later date.


The theme of this year’s Sakura Festival is “Uketsugu” or “Preserve.”


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. This year’s theme reminds us to cherish and carry on the connection that was built between the community of Tuscaloosa and our sister-city, Narashino, in Japan.


Tuscaloosa’s Annual Sakura Festival provides an opportunity to experience Japanese culture through educational demonstrations, performances, and fun activities for all ages!
