Founded in 1988 by May Louie, the San Francisco Chinatown Merchants Association (SFCMA) is an independent community organization dedicated to the revitalization of commerce and tourism in one of America's most unique historic neighborhoods. In 1991, shortly after the devastating Loma Prieta earthquake which destroyed the direct freeway link to Chinatown, SFCMA held our first Autumn Moon Festival. Through our annual sponsorship of tradition-based events like the Annual Autumn Moon Festival, the SFCMA seeks to help visitors and locals alike appreciate the rich cultural heritage of Chinatown and all those who live and work in the neighborhood.
