The Korean American Women Artists and Writers Association (KAWAWA) will be
hosting a Korean Chuseok Festival from September 30 - October 2, 2010. Chuseok is one
of Korea’s most largely celebrated holidays, when families and friends gather to share
food and enjoy their time together, giving thanks to their ancestors for the year’s bountiful
harvests. KAWAWA invites you to join the Bay Area’s Korean American community and
participate in this fun fall festival. KAWAWA is an incubating space for individuals and
groups, who draw their inspiration from their community environment and grow through
the creative process. Get engaged in traditional Korean Chuseok rituals and be a part of
creating new Korean American traditions during this three-day event. Programs include
activities and entertainment for all ages.

Other KAWAWA Chuseok events include the KAWAWA youth presenting interactive fan dance
demonstration at the Asian Art Museum on September 19th from 1-2 pm, and hosting a Chuseok Tea Ceremony on September 22nd from 2-4 pm at Martin Luther King/Marcus Garvey Square.
