The 2020 Vancouver Cherry Blossom Fest has moved online
Obviously, the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival is not going to go on as we know it this year. But, we are happy to let you know that the organizers have decided to move a fair portion of the festival online. The haikyu and photo contests are still going on, while a couple of other events have been modified. Here’s the rundown.
First- the events that have been totally cancelled. This year, sadly, the Cherry Jam, Big Picnic, and Sakura Days events will all not be happening. Another major event, the Sakura Night Dinner, has been postponed indefinitely.
Our featured blossom today is, ‘Accolade’. A small, umbrella-shaped tree with fine, wide-spreading branches, usually flowering in February or March. The small, translucent flowers are semi-double and coloured an intense light pink. pic.twitter.com/w4GFHwo6pp

Now, for the good news. You can check out a haikyu workshop and then submit your own into the competition. Or, there’s a photo competition that is just as fun to check out. But that’s not all! Because the VCBF has moved both the tree walks and the ‘bike the blossoms’ event online. Basically, what they means is they’re giving you the routes where you can take in the beauty of the cherry blossoms in all their glory.
Of course, we don’t need to remind you that if you do go outside, your number 1 priority needs to be maintaining proper social distancing. But once that’s covered, go have a ball!
