After months of cancelations, the National Cherry Blossom Festival is bringing back the region’s beloved parade on April 9, 2022! While it’s free to view the parade along its planned route, tickets for reserved grandstand seating are now on sale!

This 10-block parade, hosted along Constitution Avenue NW (between 7th-17th Streets), will feature colorful helium balloons, elaborate floats, marching bands from across the country (including the Parade’s first appearance from the US Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps), celebrity entertainers, and more in a grand spectacle of music and showmanship!

As part of the larger National Cherry Blossom Festival, hosted March 20-April 17, 2022, visitors can expect a full return of in-person events!
