Tenleytown Businesses: Join the Cherry Blossom Festival

January 10, 2022

Make your storefront bloom this March

The 2022 National Cherry Blossom Festival (NCBF) is March 20 – April 17


Tenleytown Main Street wants to pink up our business district and bring some green to your cash registers. Tenleytown businesses can join the annual citywide National Cherry Blossom Festival (NCBF) and gain valuable exposure and foot traffic by taking part in:

Cherry Picks

Restaurants feature a springtime menu item: cocktail, dish, or dessert. This year’s festival offers a different culinary theme each week:

  • 3/20-3/26: Delightful Drinks, highlighting libations, cocktails, and mocktails
  • 3/27-4/2: Cherry Night, highlighting venues participating in Cherry Night (3/31)
  • 4/3-4/9: Fresh Foodie Week, highlighting all seasonal non-dessert food items
  • 4/10-4/17: Decadent Dessert Week, highlighting festive desserts

Participating restaurants must provide three $50 gift certificates for fundraising, promotional, or publicity purposes for the NCBF. NCBF will promote your restaurant and dish on the citywide festival website, social media, official festival guide, and press kit. TMS will amplify that promotion locally through our own digital media channels.

Click here to sign up. Deadline to register is February 16.

City in Bloom

Go big with an over-the-top spring window display or simply add some springtime pink – anything goes! Decorate your window in any spring theme; TMS will gift you a set of official Cherry Blossom window decals to help you along. NCBF will feature participating businesses on the festival website and emails, and TMS will highlight you on our website, digital guide, and map.

Click here to sign up; TMS will register you with NCBF. Deadline to register and receive FREE window decals is February 14.
