National Cherry Blossom Festival - ANA Welcome Stage

 —  —

Tidal Basin Welcome Stage , West Basin Drive SW, Washington

I'm excited to be back at the National Cherry Blossom Festival's ANA Welcome Stage for 2023! I'll be playing a solo set on Saturday, March 18 from 12:55-1:40 so I hope you can come on out and see the flowers (should be peak bloom) with me! This show is free but it is always packed so I highly recommend taking the metro and giving yourself a lot of time to walk to the stage which is located in the parking lot near the Jefferson Memorial where you can rent the paddle boats. If you do decide to drive, leave yourself A LOT of time to find parking! Don't forget to dress for pictures - this is the most beautiful time of the year in DC!

Witness peak bloom at the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC, while also experiencing entertainment representing Japanese, American, and other cultures!

Live performances among the blossoms at the Tidal Basin celebrate the longstanding friendship between the U.S. and Japan with a dynamic, cross-cultural mix of American, Japanese, and other performing arts.
