Important Notice For Our Visitors, Vendors & Guests

In an abundance of caution, Cupertino-Toyokawa Sister Cities, Inc. has decided to cancel this year’s Cupertino Cherry Blossom Festival that was to be held on April 25-26, 2020.  

This decision is based on the current Santa Clara County guidelines cautioning against large public gatherings, coupled with our desire to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for all our festival attendees. There is too much uncertainty as to when it will be deemed safe to hold large public gatherings. While our festival includes a mixture of hands-on activities and lower risk outdoor activities, we decided to take the most conservative approach in the best interests of all concerned.

Thank you to our loyal festival attendees, performers, exhibitors, vendors, sponsors, guests, and volunteers whom we will sadly miss seeing at this year’s festival. We hope you will return for next year’s festival that will be held on April 24-25, 2021.

OUR THOUGHT THIS WEEKEND 

4/25 and 4/26, 2020 were supposed to be the Cupertino Cherry Blossom Festival weekend like we have done for many, many years.  Although we can't celebrate our sister city, Toyokawa, with you, we have many wonderful memories to share and will pick it up where we left off next year!  See you on April 24 and 25, 2021 when the festival returns to Memorial Park!  Meanwhile, please join our conversations on our social media pages as we reminisce past memories and share a unified sentiment - how great this weekend could have been!

One of the best festivals 

in the Bay Area

A Unique Experience

Ms. Sakkas talks about the Sister City organization and the close relationship between Cupertino and Toyokawa since 1978.  She also talks about the student exchange program, and the variety of festival entertainment and activities for visitors to enjoy. The "Better Part Show" with Ms. Grace Trafton was aired on KMVT in March, 2018.

“The festival is a great community event because it celebrates and honors one of Cupertino’s oldest sister city relationships, with Toyokawa, Japan, by gathering our diverse community to experience Japanese arts, music, culture and food,” ...“One of the truly unique features of our program is the large variety of Japanese exhibits, performances, foods and hands-on activities.”
