Cherry Blossom Day 2016 – April 16

Tomorrow Stockholm is hosting the yearly edition of the Cherry Blossom Day. The highly anticipated event will take place, as usual, in Kungsträdgården and it will celebrate the blossoming of the cherry flowers in the park.

The Cherry Blossom Day is the ultimate sign of spring in Stockholm. The event is organized by the City of Stockholm in cooperation with the Japanese Association and marks the moment when the beautiful Kungsträdgården turns pink, letting everyone know that the cold winter days are behind us.

This year the festive day at Kungsträdgården will offer events between 13.00 and 17.00. On the stage, there will be various performances between 14.00 and 16.00. By visiting the park you can see examples of Japanese dance, demonstrations of various types of martial arts, a fashion show, choir performances, insights on calligraphy or shows presenting kimonos. All of these will mark the Japanese spring celebrations.

The truly amazing cherry flowers of Kungsträdgården are usually blooming in the middle of April every year and the colourful show lasts for around ten days. Do not miss this visually stunning experience!
