From the Organizer
The 2021 Buffalo Cherry Blossom Festival will be virtual this year with virtual presentations by Sato Restaurant, Sun Cuisines and Lockhouse Distillery, the local creators of Sakura Gin. We’ll have a meditation and a walking tour in the garden. Nature lovers are invited to find inspiration in the garden and try their hand at writing a haiku, a 17-syllable traditional Japanese poem. Music is Art is curating a virtual concert with something creative and unique to present. The office of Mayor Yamano of Kanazawa, Japan, will also be sharing a virtual tour of the Kenroku-en garden! For the full virtual program and online raffle fundraiser, please visit our website or the website of Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy: bfloparks.org/blossoms2021. Buffalo’s Japanese Garden in Delaware Park was originally designed and created in the 1970’s with our sister city of Kanazawa, Japan so it’s a physical reminder of our decades of Sister City friendship and commitment.
