Thank you for volunteering for the 57th Annual Sakura Matsuri – Japanese Street Festival. We are very grateful for all your help!

This year's festival will be on Saturday, April 8 from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm at the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood of southwest DC.

Be part of the largest one-day celebration of Japanese culture in the country! Last year, Sakura Matsuri attracted over 25,000 people interested in Japan and Japanese culture.

JASWDC is a non-profit membership organization that offers language & cultural classes to Americans and Japanese, networking opportunities and a place for Americans to better understand Japanese culture. Sakura Matsuri is our largest outreach program and allows JASWDC to keep our doors open and offer a wide variety of programs all year round.
