National Cherry Blossom Festival: Tidal Basin Welcome Area & ANA Stage
The convenient location of the Tidal Basin Welcome Area is offered by the National Park Service and its partners, and provides visitor services, first aid, food, souvenirs, books, and more. Park rangers and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the Festival.
Visit the National Cherry Blossom Festival tent in the Paddle Boat Parking Lot for fun interactive entertainment, official merchandise, and more.
Performances on the ANA Stage are meant to celebrate the friendship symbolized by the gift of flowering cherry trees from Tokyo to Washington, D.C. and to demonstrate cross-cultural exchange through a dynamic mix of American, Japanese, and other cultural performing arts.
The Festival strives to incorporate artists that perform family-friendly dances, demonstrations, or music that are upbeat and festive – reflective of the celebratory nature of the Festival.
