As spring arrives, Vancouver undergoes a remarkable transformation as the city’s iconic cherry blossom trees burst into bloom, painting the city pink and white.

To commemorate this awe-inspiring spectacle, the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival holds a yearly Big Picnic event. This brings together the community for a joyous celebration of nature, food, and music.

The Big Picnic Vancouver 2024

A popular annual event returns on Saturday March 30th, spanning a full day from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm.

The festivities are held at David Lam Park in Yaletown. The location pays tribute to the Honorable Dr. David Lam. Where if not for his donation of 100 Akebono cherry trees to Vancouver, these beautiful sights would not be possible.

Moreover, the event is an occasion for fostering friendship. Everyone is welcome and considered a friend under the cherry tree.

This year, they are excited to announce the introduction of new activities and installations, such as BreakOUT, a Haiku Exhibition showcasing artists from xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and Japanese-Canadian backgrounds, alongside Blossom Bento by ABURI To-Go from Minami.

The festival will also feature an array of activities and attractions, including a communal picnic. Participants are encouraged to prepare their own picnic adventures at home and join in a shared meal with friends, family, and strangers alike.

Nestled in the heart of the Yaletown neighborhood, visitors can unwind under the cherry blossoms and enjoy a diverse lineup of local performers and food trucks. Additionally, the event offers a range of interactive arts activities and workshops to engage attendees of all ages
