Please note: Official 2017 dates for National Cherry Blossom Festival events are March 20 through April 16. Exactly when the cherry blossom buds will open is not easy to predict, as an accurate forecast of peak bloom is nearly impossible to provide much more than 10 days prior. The blooming period starts several days before typical peak and can last as long as 14 days, if not shortened by frost, high temperatures, wind or heavy rain.

Please note: Exactly when the cherry Blossom buds will open is not easy to predict and it is extremely difficult to give an accurate forecast much more than 10 days before peak bloom. The blooming period starts several days before the average peak bloom date (April 4th) and can last as long as 14 days, however, frost or high temperatures combined with wind or rain can shorten this period.
