Celebrate spring at the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s Petalpalooza presented by FreshDirect, a full day of art, music, and play held at the newly developed District Wharf!
Formerly known as the Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival, Petalpalooza will include interactive art installations, larger-than-life games and activities, live music on three outdoor stages, a beer garden, a spectacular fireworks show by Pyrotecnico, and much more along the piers of the Southwest Waterfront, the “home of the cherry blossoms.” Take in the half-mile-long stretch of The Wharf’s new shops and restaurants as Petalpalooza transforms the waterfront community into a one-day-only spectacle of spring!
Petalpalooza is FREE and offers activities for all ages, including a roller skating rink, a gigantic floral color-by-number, calligraphy artists, bike-powered art, a Petalpalooza Main Stage, and a 202 Stage featuring DC-based performers. Keep checking back for more updates on this highly anticipated event!
Note: Fireworks show begins at 8:30PM, but the festivities get started at 1PM, so come early and stay awhile!
