In April 2022, legacy business Wah Mei School was announced as the new stewards of the Sunset Chinese Cultural District, originally created in 2021 as San Francisco’s ninth cultural district. SF Heritage has been proud to serve as a one of SCCD’s community planning partners, and congratulate Wah Mei on their new role! To celebrate, we will host a joint APIA Heritage Month community event in the Sunset on May 22, 2022.
The event will take place from 9:00-3:00 PM at the Outer Sunset Farmers Market and Mercantile, located at 37th Avenue and Ortega. The event will include children’s activities and community engagement activities, and a speaker program is planned between 11:00 and 12:00 PM.
After introducing the new cultural district to neighbors at previous events such as the Sunset Community Festival in October 2021 and Lunar New Year Market in February 2022, we are looking forward to this official launch event together with our SCCD partners.
