Due to growing concerns around the latest surge in COVID-19 cases in the SF Bay Area and nationwide, we have decided with heavy hearts, to cancel the in-person Chuseok Festival scheduled to take placeon Sept. 18th at the Presidio in SF. Instead, we will be holding a week-long, all virutal festival between Oct. 20th – 27th. To learn more, click HERE.
