This year, the National Park Service predicts that the cherry blossoms will reach peak bloom between March 23 and 26, 2024. The peak bloom date occurs when 70% of the white Yoshino cherry blossoms are open.
Mother Nature can be unpredictable and weather patterns can impact the exact timing of the blooms. While we will do our best to plan events and happenings around peak bloom, be assured there are plenty of activities throughout Alexandria and D.C. that will make your spring trip compelling.
