It may only be October, but tickets to one of Washington, D.C.’s biggest draws are already on sale!
The National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade announced yesterday that tickets for the grandstand at its Saturday, April 15, 2023, event are available for purchase now. (The parade can also be watched for free along the streets of D.C.)
Every year, people from all over the world flock to D.C. From late March through mid-April to take in the sight of the beautiful, blossoming cherry blossoms that adorn the Tidal Basin and line the National Mall.
The National Cherry Blossom Festival takes place during this time, highlighting these natural beauties with a bevy of additional themed activities and events, such as the Blossom Kite Festival, live music and art at Petalpalooza, and, of course, the Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run.
Due to the popularity of the event and to accommodate those who may gift the experience during the holiday season, tickets are made available early.
The 2023 National Cherry Blossom Festival will run from March 20 through April 16. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
