Opening and Closing Receptions

This year, our Opening Reception will take place on February 25th at the historic August Hall. Originally built in the 1890s as a Victorian Playhouse by celebrated architect August Headman, August Hall later started showing films as the Stage Door Theatre, and hosted the premiere of the Alfred Hitchcock film Vertigo on May 9, 1958. Now it functions as a premiere events space located centrally in downtown San Francisco. We’ll have shuttles going back and forth between the Fairmont Hotel and August Hall all evening.

Our Closing Reception will be held in the Grand Ballroom at The Fairmont. But don't forget the after party. The Closing Reception may have ended, but that doesn’t mean the party does. Stay up late with a mai tai in hand at the Tonga Room. Drinks are on us!
