The two-day festival, celebrates Japanese culture and the cherry blossom collection in the botanical gardens, with music, dance, martial art performances, workshops, crafts, and guided tours.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden started as an ash dump just over 200 years ago and today presents a magnificent horticultural display. Sakura Matsuri is often referred to as "New York's Rite of Spring," and many visitors to the festival celebrate the season with cherry-blossom inspired costume; wearing the latest trends in kimono fashion or anime-inspired cosplay costumes.
