The Junior Cherry Blossom Princess Program


The Junior Cherry Blossom Princess Program is a cultural program and celebration for young girls ages 5 to 12 years old held each year in Washington, DC during the National Cherry Blossom Festival(c). The program, formally launched in 2012, is managed by the National Conference of State Societies (NCSS). Throughout one week of the Festival, Junior Cherry Blossom Princesses have the opportunity to participate in a variety of cultural and social events celebrating the unique and enduring friendship between the United States and Japan.

The 2023 Program will commence with the Sashing event on Saturday  April 8th at the Capital Hilton at 2:00pm.  Other events include the Japanese Stone Lantern Lighting and Grand Ball.
