UPDATE: THE IN PERSON FESTIVAL FOR 2021 HAS BEEN CANCELED
KCI is delighted to announce the return of the in-person Bay Area Chuseok (Korean Harvest) Festival at the Presidio, along with a limited virtual program. The Festival celebrates the rich cultural diversity of the Bay Area by offering a place for all of us to come together around our shared passion for all things Korean and showcasing Korean traditions, music, arts, cuisine, and community.
Our mission is to inspire exploration and discovery of Korean culture across communities and generations, while offering the area’s Korean Americans a way to celebrate together an important traditional holiday.
This year’s Festival also celebrates the strength and resilience of our community as we emerge from a tough pandemic year and the collective courage needed to continue fighting against anti-Asian hate crimes in our community.
We are committed to delivering an inclusive and accessible festival with participant safety a top priority, and cannot wait to welcome you back!
Korean Food & Drink: Enjoy delicious food, beverages and snacks from Bay Area vendors that include K-BBQ, Korean street food, Noodles, and more as well as beer, soju, makgeoli (Korean rice wine) and other non-alcoholic beverages. Stay tuned to see our full food vendor line up.
K-Pop & Other Musical Performances: Enjoy traditional and pop music, dance and other performances. Stay tuned for details.
Spotlight on Local Community: Discover and support local Korean artists, makers, businesses, and non-profits serving the Korean community.
Art Contest for Youth: Submit artwork that reflects one of three themes (your choice), including what “Chuseok” means to you. Open to K-12 students. In collaboration with the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. Details coming soon.
All activities at this year’s Chuseok Festival are being offered free of charge to participants. For those in a position to make a donation, KCI would greatly appreciate any financial support to help offset festival costs, as well as to support our social services and programming for seniors.
No amount is too small. Thank you in advance for your support!
