Event: 2020 Golden Gate Conference at Asilomar

Golden Gate Conference cancelled

It is with great sadness that we announce our decision to cancel the 2020 SCBWI SF/South Golden Gate Conference at Asilomar. Based on the guidance of state and county public health officials, the Centers for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization, we felt it was no longer responsible to bring a large group together in light of the coronavirus outbreak.
We did not take this decision lightly, as we know how much you count on this conference as a way to build community and build your professional careers. We are deeply and truly sorry that we are not going to be providing our community with this opportunity this year. The conference has been held for 36 years and this, the 37th year, will be the first time in all those years that we have come to a decision like this. We are living in unprecedented times.
Please contact us at if you have any questions.
