Making a global tradition bloom
The National Cherry Blossom Festival has been a global phenomenon since 1912, bringing more than 1.5 million people to Washington, D.C. each year to revel in the city’s beauty and experience the singular culture that sets D.C. apart from the rest of the nation. Since 2008, Linder has been proud to be the partnering events agency of the Festival and a driving force in its continued success.
