If this is your first application in 2018, please see 2018 Festival Productions Annual Application Processing Fee listed above.
Crafters and artists that feature Japanese items, or better quality art or craft items imported from Japan, are allowed in this event, as well as traditional American arts and crafts. Booths are arranged around a small lake. Fair goers are primarily Asian. Japanese drummers, and other entertainment including a major cultural display, attract fair goers from the entire South Bay Area. You will be able to find excellent Japanese food. The Cherry Blossom Festival takes place in Memorial Park that fronts on Stevens Creek Blvd. and is adjacent to the Oakes Shopping Center, so the festival gets good drive by traffic. Booths are set up on grass and may be left up over night. Friday evening setup available. FP does not book food vendors or musical performances in this event.
