Chinese Program and The Asian Studies Program would like to invite you to attend the Mid-Autumn Festival.
The Mid-Autumn Festival, or Moon Festival, is the second most important
traditional holiday in China. It is also broadly celebrated in East Asia,
Southeast Asia, and their overseas communities. This festival commemorates
the autumn harvest while enjoying a full moon with family and friends. It is
similar to Thanksgiving in U.S and is celebrated on the 15th day of August in
the lunar calendar. This year it takes place on Friday, September 13th. Our
celebration event will take place on September 13th (the Roman
version), 2019, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Pavilion. Please join us for
Chinese food, moon cake, fruits, games, music, and crafting activities.
