Tenleytown Businesses: Join Tenleytown Blossoms

January 9, 2023

Make Your Storefront Bloom this Spring with Tenleytown Blossoms

During the 2023 National Cherry Blossom Festival (NCBF) March 20 – April 16


Tenleytown Main Street wants to pink up our business district and bring some green to your cash registers with Tenleytown Blossoms, our local celebration of the National Cherry Blossom Festival (NCBF). Tenleytown businesses can join the annual citywide festival and also participate in local events throughout the month. Gain valuable exposure and foot traffic by taking part in:

Cherry Picks

Restaurants feature a springtime menu item, whether it be a cocktail, dish, or dessert. New this year, the Festival is partnering with the Goosechase App for the inaugural Cherry Hunt, a gamified engagement experience for Festival attendees who can document their Cherry Picks journey for points and a chance to win prizes. This year’s festival offers a different culinary theme each week:

  • March 20-25 – Delightful Drinks Festive libations, cocktails and mocktails
  • April 2-8 – Fresh Foodie Appetizers and main courses
  • April 9-16 – Decadent Desserts Festive delicacies

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, press kit, and list the promotion on the Goosechase app as a Cherry Hunt mission. TMS will amplify that promotion locally through our own digital media channels.

Decorate your window in any spring theme; TMS will gift you a set of official Cherry Blossom window decals to help you along.
