Walk-in Welcome! Free Mooncake provided by completing little missions!
On September 10 from 1-3 pm.
The moon has been an object of general worship and great symbolism in Chinese culture for thousands of years. By the 7th century, the reverence had merged with traditional harvest celebrations to formalize the Mid-Autumn or Moon Festival, therefore, it is a harvest festival that is all about giving thanks, for nature’s abundance and for joyful reunions with loved ones.
Join us for the celebration of traditional Chinese and American festivals! Every year, the American Chinese Museum will hold large scale celebrations with cultural significance. The festival celebration will be filled with traditions, delicious food and reunions with friends. The richness and grandeur of Chinese and American history and culture will be on full display in the festivals that the Chinese and American people celebrate throughout the year.
Stay tuned for our next festival celebration!
