Sept 8: Richmond District Autumn Moon Festival

Saturday, September 8, 2018

Richmond District Autumn Moon Festival is on September 8

It's time for the 2nd Annual Autumn Moon Festival!  Autumn Moon Festival celebrations have been held throughout Asia for well over 1,000 years. This holiday is a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of the moon, and the myth of the immortal moon Goddess, Chang-O, who lives in the moon. The Moon Festival is often considered a “Chinese Thanksgiving” because of its celebration of gratitude and inclusion of abundant food – including the popular moon cake. The Autumn Moon Festival will be a fun, family-friendly event where attendees will have a taste of the cultural diversity of the Richmond District. Please join us!
