This Festival will offer activities for all ages and will be very enjoyable. Bring your family and friends to this special celebration at Gyuto Foundation.

TRANSPORTATION AND DIRECTIONS
6401 Bernhard Ave, Richmond, CA 94805 (map here)
Only street parking will be available. We strongly request that you carpool or take BART, as there will NOT be parking available at the monastery. We don’t want to upset our neighbors with too many cars parked on the side streets around the monastery.
Some guidlines for parking in the neighborhood:
Please do not block the neighbor’s driveways
Leave sufficient room for the residents to get in and out of their driveways
Remember to always lock your car; do NOT leave valuables in sight that may attract break-ins
This will help keep our neighbors from calling the police and getting your car ticketed or towed.
Thank you for helping us keep our friendly neighbors FRIENDLY!
