The Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival is a family-friendly celebration of spring and Japanese culture. The festival will take place on Saturday, April 9, 2016 at Nashville Public Square from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and will begin with the Cherry Blossom Walk, sponsored by Sister Cities of Nashville. Admission is free. Festival highlights include a full day of live Japanese music and dance, a roving “Candyman,” martial arts demonstrations, children’s activities, anime merchandise, a Cosplay Contest, sumo-suit wrestling and a variety of Japanese food, including special menus from some of Nashville’s favorite food trucks. Proceeds benefit the mission of the Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival Committee to plant 1,000 cherry trees – 100 each spring over 10 years – to help beautify Nashville’s parks and neighborhoods.
