- Flavor Pass Booklet
An Awesome Self-Guided Food Adventure
Taste the District with The National Cherry Blossom Festival Flavor Pass. Your Flavor Pass is redeemable for spring time specials and discounts at some of the best restaurants in and around DC.
Whether you live in the city, or are visiting DC for our spring time celebration, let us inspire you to explore the diverse food scene in the city, support local restaurants, and enjoy the flavors of the season. One Flavor Pass is perfect for a couple or for roommates as most of the specials are 2 for 1 or a significant percentage off of your total. You’ll reclaim the cost of the Flavor Pass just by visiting a couple of our partners!
The National Cherry Blossom Festival Flavor Pass is good for the duration of the Festival, allowing you to experience as many restaurants as you’d like!
As you taste your way around the city, share your adventures on social. We’ll be keeping tabs and will reward the person who visits the most Flavor Pass spots with two tickets for a Fork or Fizz tour, valued at $178.
Your Flavor Pass also includes a 2021 Official National Cherry Blossom Festival Lapel Pin. All revenue generated from the sale of the Official Lapel Pins, including with the Flavor Pass, is contributed to the Trust for the National Mall’s Cherry Tree Endowment Fund, which ensures the flowering cherry trees are sustained for future generations to enjoy.
Hardcopy Flavor Passes and Lapel Pins will be mailed, beginning early March.
Redeemable: March 20-Apr 11, buy early to receive by the 20th.
How does it work?
Our Flavor Pass gives guests exclusive deals and specials from some of our favorite restaurants in the DC area. All specials and deals are valid through the duration of The National Cherry Blossom Festival.
Inside the Flavor Pass booklet, you’ll find the participating restaurants along with their offerings, the story behind each location and how to redeem it in person or through takeaway options.
You’ll also find information on The National Cherry Blossom Festival’s Art in Bloom, which brings the magic of the cherry blossom trees to the streets of DC and a QR code to link to an interactive map of participating restaurants and the art installations.
Booklets are available by mail. Shipping will begin early March.
