Cherry Blossom Festival
We look forward to seeing everyone on March 25th at the 2023 Irmo Cherry Blossom Festival
A celebration of beautiful blooms and the preciousness of life
NOTE: The Festival Application is now OPEN!
Blooms of colorful cherry blossoms are a sure sign of the arrival of spring in the Southern region. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival of Irmo honors these beautiful flowering trees.
The celebration takes place in the oh-so-photogenic Irmo Town Park. Planted in 2001, the six Yoshino trees put forth an amazing bloom at their peak. The jewel-box Irmo Town Park comes alive with the exuberant pale pink blooms in late March. The family-friendly festival features quiet picnicking, blossom-viewing, plein air art, handcrafted artwork, and more.
The event is scheduled to take place on March 25, 2023, from 10 am - 5 pm. The rain date is set for March 26, 2023. Picnics are welcome!
