We’re the volunteer coordinators for the Japan-America Society of Washington DC’s Sakura Matsuri. It’s the Japanese street festival that closes out the cherry blossom season every year in downtown DC. We’re a volunteer run festival and we still need people to help! We’re especially looking for volunteers to help on the second day of the festival Sunday, April 16.

Volunteers get free admission to the festival, a t-shirt, snacks, and drinks which include beer for anyone over the age of 21! They can register online here or email us at [email protected] with any questions.”
