Celebrating the cherry blossom

Japanese festivities take over at Sakura

Sakura Festival 
Apr 25-26 from 11:00; Langelinie Park, Cph Ø; sakurafestival.dk

Back for the eighth time, Copenhagen Sakura festival celebrates the arrival
of spring via the blooming cherry blossom trees.

A two-day picnic celebrating Danish-Japanese relations is held under them. Don’t worry if you forget to bring food, you can buy some at the festival – Japanese of course – while you enjoy cultural activities provided by geisha girls, samurai warriors and plenty more.

The 200 trees that form the backdrop for the festival were a gift commemorating HC Andersen’s 200th birthday in 2005 and are placed close to the Little Mermaid.

Bring your inliners down from the attic, as Friday Night Skate is back. Born in
San Francisco in 1989, the idea is to skate through town collectively and have fun!

Looking for that up-and coming designer who’s going to make it huge? Then look no further. Remember that the stalls don’t accept cards so bring cash.
