Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival 2024

The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, one of the city’s most beloved spring festivals, is returning this March.

Taking place from March 29 to April 25, the festival is an opportunity for people to appreciate and discover the roughly 43,000 cherry blossom trees across the city.



In addition to the trees, the festival puts on accessible public performances and exhibitions, creating a sense of community through art.


The festival has also announced TD Bank Group as its new presenting sponsor for the next three years, allowing organizers to expand what they can offer.

“We’re so proud to expand our relationship with the VCBF through this new title sponsorship, as the festival prepares to launch its best season yet,”said Kevin Hamaoka, Senior Vice President of Pacific Business Banking, TD Bank Group.

“Through the TD Ready Commitment, our corporate citizenship platform, we’re supporting organizations focused on increasing access for people to take part in cultural activities, reflect diverse voices and bring people together.”



The 2024 festival starts off with Blossoms After Dark from March 29-31, a magical evening experience under the illuminated cherry blossoms.

On March 30th, The Big Picnic takes place at David Lam Park. This event honours the Honourable Dr. David Lam’s donation of cherry trees and celebrates friendship.

You’ll be able to relax under cherry blossoms right in the heart of the city in the Yaletown neighbourhood while enjoying a superb line-up of local talent on the Cherry Jam Stage as well as a variety of fun and interactive arts activities and workshops.

Tree Talks and Walks are free guided tours led by local experts that focus on not just the cherry blossom trees but the various other trees that make up our urban ecosystem. It’s an opportunity to explore Vancouver’s neighbourhoods and parks, to better understand how our trees play a vital role in our city, and to learn about the history of the land we inhabit.
