Every year the Japan-America Society of Washington DC hosts the annual Cherry Blossom Festival (“Sakura Matsuri”) to celebrate Japanese culture, music, food and the long fruitful connection between our two great nations. Scouts of the National Capital Area Council may elect to serve as “Scout Ambassadors” during a portion of the event and provide direction to visitors. It’s a great way to provide service to an international forum, put Scouting’s best foot forward and obtain free admission to the festival.

Particulars: Scouts will hand out programs or provide directions from the Metro stations to the festival. They will be asked to work one 3-hour shift but if we get enough volunteers, this will be reduced to one 2-hour shift. Full Class A uniforms are required


How to register: Online registration is closed but we still need help. If you still want to be a part of the event, put on your Class A uniform, find a buddy (Scouts serve in two man teams) and come down to the festival site. We will plug you in to the program in some shape or form. Scouters are welcome as well.

Notes of Note: Participants are STRONGLY advised to take Metro to the event. Closest stations are Federal Triangle (Orange/Blue lines), Metro Center (Red/Orange/Blue), or Archives Navy Memorial (Yellow/Green). Bottled water will be provided by the festival organizers but Scouts might want to bring their own reusable bottles. There will be many food vendors so bringing lunch or snacks is optional. Volunteers may attend the Festival before or after their shift of duty at no cost.

Additional information can be found at the the event website here and a program guide is available here.
