Join us for the
North State Tai Chi Festival!
Saturday, October 9, 2021
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Location: Lake Redding Park, Redding, CA
Note: We want to insure that we have a COVID safe event. With that in mind,
all attendees will be required to wear masks over their nose and mouth
and practice social distancing.
The North State Tai Chi Festival is open to anyone who has an interest in Tai Chi, meditative movement, or an interest in learning new ways to improve your health. It will be a time to share knowledge, learn new things, experience difference teachers and styles of Tai Chi. It will also be a time to make new friends and make new connections.
We will have four instructors to introduce you to different exercises and aspects of Tai Chi. Participants will be able to take a short 45 minute class from each teacher.
We are in the process of planning
the North State Tai Chi Festival.

the information on this page.
