During the reception portion of this annual gala, guests will enjoy sushi by Master Sushi Chefs of Washington DC, and a fabulous dinner and dessert prepared by the 5 star chefs at the Renaissance Hotel. Following dinner, the highlight of the black tie evening is the formal introduction of the Cherry Blossom Princesses—and the spinning of the Wheel of Fortune. When the Wheel stops, one lucky Princess will be crowned the 100th Anniversary 2013 US Cherry Blossom Queen.

There is an exciting and fun “After Party” that starts at 10pm until 2am with lively music and dancing to celebrate the new Queen and all the 2014 US Cherry Blossom Princesses immediately after the Grand Ball.

Valet Parking is available, along with garage parking or lot parking across the street.  The hotel is also accessible via Metro (Gallery Place, Red Line).

The National Conference of State Societies (NCSS) established the Cherry Blossom Princess Educational and Cultural Exchange Program for the first post-World War II National Cherry Blossom Festival® in 1948. NCSS is the only civic organization that has sponsored National Cherry Blossom Festival events every year since then.
