If this is your first application in 2020, please see 2020 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 Oaks Shopping Center, so the festival gets good drive-by traffic. Spaces are 10' x 10' and set up on grass and may be left up Saturday night. There is limited security on Saturday night. Friday evening setup available after 3 PM, but there is no overnight security. There is no water available on the event site, and portable generators are allowed after receiving written permission from Festival Productions at the time you apply for the event.
FP does not book food vendors or musical performances in this event. Returning artists will have preference to have their 2019 space reassigned to them until February 1, 2020.
The event sponsor has added an indoor section to the festival. The senior center is adjacent to the main festival site. If you sell high quality original Japanese themed art, you can apply for this indoor space. Artists will receive an 8' x 8' space with one table and one chair. In order to secure an indoor location, apply online and select "Qualified Organizational Fee" in order to get the special $125 fee.
