Schedule of Events at 2015 Cherry Blossom Festival

The International Cherry Blossom Festival is excited to announce the schedule of events for the 33rd annual Festival taking place throughout Macon, Georgia, from March 19 through April 4.

You can find a complete list of Festival events here and Central City Park information here.

“For the last 32 years, people from around the world have traveled to Macon-Bibb County to celebrate spring under an awning of pink petals each March. This Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the arrival of spring with a jam-packed schedule of events that captures the beauty of the cherry tree and embraces the Japanese tradition of hanami, which means ‘flower viewing.’ Many events have free admission and all are open to the public. I am thrilled to see the joy on people's faces and all of the excitement of hosting this year's Festival," said Mark Butcher, 2015 Cherry Blossom Festival Chairman.
