The event is a fundraiser for Tri-State/Denver Buddhist temple programs.

Collectors, bring some spending money so you can buy up vintage kimonos, Japanese pottery, and handcrafted jewelry. Don’t worry—J-pop culture is not forgotten at the Cherry Blossom Festival. Goods up for grabs—at the right price—include manga and anime books, Hawaiian shirts and tees, and collectible Japanese dolls. For sa unique memento, have your name written in a one-of-a-kind calligraphic style. 
 
Be sure to bring your appetite with you to Cherry Blossom Denver. Teriyaki burgers, udon noodles, sushi, and the classic teriyaki chicken dinner plate are all on the menu. Get a cup of fragrant green tea—great for your health—or go for an ice-cold beer in the beer garden. Save room for delicious Japanese desserts including mochi and manju.

Children especially love attending the Festival, which has a full line-up of entertainment on stage at Lawrence and 20th streets as well as inside the Buddhist Temple. In addition to taiko drummers, get ready to be wowed by Japanease folk dancing, mesmerized by a magician, and enchanted by shingin singing and poetry. It’s a celebration you don’t want to miss!
