Peekskill Rotary's 6th Annual Cherry Blossom Festival & Plant Sale

Celebrate the beginning of spring, when the 100 cherry trees along the Riverfront Walkway start to bloom.

Saturday, May 6, 2023
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Peekskill Riverfront Green Park

Admission and parking are free with easy access from the Peekskill train station.

The Rotary Club of Peekskill will hold its Annual Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday, May 6, 2023 at the Peekskill Riverfront Green. It is our hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating the beginning of spring, when the 100 cherry trees we planted along the riverfront walkway start to bloom. This festival is for people of all ages.

Topping last year's successful event, the 6th Annual Cherry Blossom Festival & Plant Sale aims to be its biggest and best yet. We've added live music and dance, and expanded to 70 craft vendors, 33 raffle prizes, 12 food trucks, and continued the children's events such as flower pot painting, arts & crafts, games, bouncy slides.

Highlights include the plant sale, timed to be perfect for planting, and gift giving for Mother's Day. The 33 raffle prizes are so varied, you'll find something you'd like to win. Maybe you just want to stop by, grab something to eat, catch some music.

If you want to continue after 5 pm, there will be a pub crawl. The participating restaurants and bars are asked to come up with something cherry. In its first year, plans are to award the establishment with the best cherry whatever. Future years may expand to a restaurant week in Peekskill with the same idea, including cherry pie, cherry ice cream, cherry jubilee, cherry cobbler, etc.

All proceeds raised by the Rotary Club of Peekskill go back to our local community and International projects sponsored by Rotary International.
