The 8th Annual Mid Autumn Moon Festival celebrates a tradition dating back thousands of years in many Asian countries honoring a good harvest, youth, families, and community! The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is often compared to America's Thanksgiving tradition, and is a time honored Asian holiday that marks the end of the summer harvest.
This festival incorporates a wide range of entertainment and programs that include storytelling, authentic Asian Ceremonial fashion shows, ribbon and dragon dancing, martial arts demonstrations, children's activities, musical and dance performances, children's lantern parade, and special appearances by the Moon Goddess.
This event is produced in partnership with Friends of Pagoda, Oriental Garden Foundation and Local Chinese Organizations
