2018 Cherry Jam Downtown Concert

Cherry Jam Concert

The Cherry Blossom Festival’s Cherry Jam Downtown Concert is a free event that takes place under shelter at Vancouver’s Burrard Street Skytrain Station.

It’s part of the annual Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival which runs from April 5th to 29th in 2018.

Blossom Festival Cherry Jam

In 2018 the Cherry Jam Downtown Concert takes place on Thursday, April 5th, from noon until 1:30 pm.

The venue is at Burrard Station which is located at 635 Burrard Street just one stop from Waterfront Station by SkyTrain.

The Cherry Jam Downtown Concert is a small event, drawing only a couple of hundred spectators most years and lasting only 90 minutes. It’s free though, and definitely worth checking out if you happen to be in the area.

The performances at the Cherry Jam event are all good, Burrard Street Station’s indoor concourse is a great venue as it’s large, semi-outdoors and protected from the rain, and the cherry blossoms in the square outside can be some of Vancouver’s finest when they are at their peak.

Entertainment at the event this year includes performances by the Sound Eclectic Vocal Ensemble, Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble, the Tetsu Taiko Japanese drumming group, Alcvin Ramos on the Japanese bamboo flute, and pianist Ken Cormier from Chor Leoni.

At the event there are readings of winning poems from the 2017 Haiku Invitational poetry contest.
