Each spring, a jubilee of pink blossoms abound in DC bringing visitors from near and far to celebrate our nation’s beautiful Cherry Blossoms. This year, our National Cherry Blossom Festival may be a little bit different but we are always delighted to share in the springtime spirit.

Whether you get to enjoy the cherry blossoms in person or virtually, we hope you will also partake in one of our cherry blossom specials:

Our bar teams have created a special handcrafted cocktail, the Cherry Julep, made with bourbon, mint, and cherry liqueur.  The Cherry Julep is available for $12 for our in-person diners and can also be purchased with to go food for $20 for a 16 ounce bottle. 

We also have a very special dessert: Double Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake with Almond Toffee Crunch.  The dessert will be available throughout the festival at all of our DC-area restaurants.

From March 20 through April 11, we will be showcasing our Cherry Blossom-themed picks across all of our DC-area restaurants the best way we know how – by serving up our scratch-made food and drink. Farmers & Distillers is partnering with the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington’s (RAMW) Cherry Picks program to celebrate the National Cherry Blossom Festival with special food and drink offerings for diners across our region.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival marks the beginning of spring in our nation’s capital with specially created programs around the Tidal Basin and our national monuments to promote arts and culture and to celebrate the natural beauty that surrounds us. These programs are designed to educate and inspire not only during the festival, but all year long. This year, many of the programs are available virtually.

However you get to enjoy this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival, we hope you will join us or pick up our special cherry sip or sweet. If joining us on our patio or in our restaurant, we recommend making a reservation.
