    Two Weekends

    The Cherry Blossom Festival is the most-attended event at Descanso Gardens, as a result, this year Descanso has extended the festival from a single weekend to two weekends.


    Access to the festival is included with a reservation and admission to Descanso Gardens. Admission to Descanso Gardens is $9 for adults; $6 for seniors and students with a school I.D.; $4 for children 5 to 12, and free for ages 4 and younger.

    “While cherry blossom viewing and spring partying beneath the flowering trees originated in Japan, people of all cultures and traditions enjoy the stunningly beautiful display of white and pink flowering trees popping against the dark green of the camellia and oak forest.”

    —David R. Brown, Executive Director at Descanso Gardens
