Third Annual Richmond District Autumn Moon Festival
I’m thrilled to join Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer in hosting the Third Annual San Francisco Richmond District Autumn Moon Festival.
Autumn Moon Festivals have been held throughout Asia for well over 1,000 years. The celebrations are 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. 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.
Sound fun? Then please join us:
Saturday, September 14
11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This event is co-hosted by the Richmond Neighborhood Center, the Clement Street Merchants Association and the Community Youth Center. Big thanks to them and our sponsors for their generosity in helping to bring our community together.
There will be lots of food, entertainment, games and more to enjoy. Don’t forget the Dog PAWgeant at 12:30 p.m. See whose pet has the best costume or trick. Hope to see you there!
