Simple Steps Community Connection (aka Simple Steps) was founded in May 2017 in an effort to support immigrant communities in the Bay Area. Simple Steps recognized the challenges encountered by immigrants in tapping significant resources and sought to provide greater opportunities for the communities. One of our main causes is empowering women whose careers were temporarily discontinued, an issue that touches many women, particularly those with immigrant backgrounds.
The festival celebrates Chuseok (추석), a Korean holiday very similar to Thanksgiving. It’s a day in which Koreans give thanks and spend time with family and those we care about. The exact day of Chuseok changes every year because it’s based on the Lunar calendar, but it’s normally in either September or October. Every year for the past 25 years, the Bay Area Korean community has celebrated Chuseok to raise cultural awareness of Korea.
Please note, details posted are from last year. There are no 2017 updates yet but we expect the same this year.
What you can enjoy:
- Colorful cultural performances from Korea
- Hands on cultural experiences
- Korean food
- Specialty vendors & an expo
