Cherry Blossom Festival's "The Big Picnic" returns to Vancouver April 2

Mar 29 2022, 5:30 pm

Vancouver’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival is returning for spring 2022.

It’s a celebration of the city’s gorgeous pink cherry trees and a welcome sight for winter-weary Vancouverites.

The almost month-long festival takes place from April 1 to April 23, 2022, and spans across all of Metro Vancouver.

One of the annual highlights of this fest is The Big Picnic, which might be the country’s biggest outdoor picnic celebration.

On April 2, Sakura-seekers and picnic lovers are invited to be a part of the afternoon event at the enchanting David Lam Park.

The new park location this year serves as a way to honour Dr. David Lam’s donation of the abundant cherry trees, encouraging Vancouverites and visitors alike to celebrate friendship and kinship.

Those who attend are encouraged to bring a picnic mat and a picnic basket, and enjoy the afternoon festivities.

The event will be offering sushi for purchase, with special Blossom Bento boxes available. Expect eats from some of Vancouver’s top food trucks, too.

Activities will include performances on the Cherry Jam Stage, as well as other interactive arts activities and workshops.
