No corn dogs, here, right?

See you next year!

August 17th is observed as a sacred day of the year by the Indonesian. This year, in conjunction of Indonesia’s 65th Independence Anniversary, the Indonesian community in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area is holding its 17th annual Indonesia Day Celebration on July 31st, 2010  in Union Square, the busiest, most popular, and most visited place by tourists and the local people, in San Francisco from 11AM to 04:00PM.

Our goal in conducting this event is to promote Indonesia as a whole to the American people by sharing our culture, history, food, traditional dances, contemporary music, languages, diversity, heritage and tourism. We, the Indonesian people in Northern California, cherish and are proud to undertake year after year with great honor, pleasure and compassion.

In collaboration with the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in San Francisco, we have been successfully conducting this event every year for the past 12 years. This event has generated a positive perception of the American public about Indonesia. To continue this effort, we have developed and will continue to build a mutual corporation with the local businesses, business counterparts in Indonesia, and the local government, such as with the Mayor Office of San Francisco.

For the city of San Francisco, this annual event reflects the great diversity of San Francisco and helps the local people and tourists learn more about the rich history of Indonesia and the unique entertainment that the City of San Francisco has to offer. This event has been and will continue to contribute to the economical growth of San Francisco, and we are proud to be a part of it.”
