The 45h Annual

Cherry Blossom Festival

on April 22 was a Wonderful Event!

Thousands of people came to the Park on April 22 and enjoyed Festival and the delightful weather.  People of all ages had a great time listening to the sounds of swing, jazz salsa and more.  Kids loved the activities provided in the Children & Families area; our exhibitors said they were really busy; there were happy people in lines for the great food vendors, and many followed up with picnics in the Park. (see photo below)  

The New Haven Independent had a great photo feature by Markeshia Ricks. Click to view!

Festival Picnicking in the Park


Families relax, the kids play, school groups have recess and games (see photo), and friends of all ages play ball. People read, do yoga or tai chi, walk their dogs, have picnics - and enjoy pizza!  Wooster Square is truly a living park.
