Cherry blossoms transform the DC area every Spring, but nothing compares to the Tidal Basin during Peak Bloom! The famous Cherry Blossom trees around the Tidal Basin were a gift of Japan in 1912. The annual explosion of color and blooms around the Tidal Basin signal the beginning of Spring in Washington DC.
The Tidal Basin Welcome Area of The National Cherry Blossom Festival will be open from March 20 through April 12, 2020 amidst the sea of pink and white blossoms.
