Since 2008, the JCCSF has had the great honor of presenting The Art of Aging Gracefully Resource Fair, an annual large-scale event that provides inspiration, perspective and resources to the older adult community. We had to cancel last year’s event due to COVID-19, but are excited to announce that it’s back in an engaging new online format in 2021.  

The re-envisioned event will consist of a mini-series of two one-hour presentations focusing on graceful aging in the arts, particularly in the opera and visual arts. Through the lens of a mature artistic community that brings creativity and passion to all they do, we will get to the heart of the beauty, hope and determination inherent in the aging process.

While the event may look different this year, its mission remains the same: to inspire and uplift the older adult community, and show that their place in this world isn’t just valued — it’s vital. 

As the premier San Francisco older adult resource fair, The Art of Aging Gracefully is open to the community at large at no cost.
