The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional festival celebrated by many East and Southeast Asian communities. It is the second-most important holiday after Chinese New Year and dates back over 3,000 years, when the Emperor of China worshipped the moon for bountiful harvests.
The community is invited to celebrate this honored tradition with friends and family at Great Park, enjoying live musical and dance performances, cultural exhibits, and a festive atmosphere. The festival is traditionally held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar, during a full moon that coincides with harvest time in the middle of autumn. This family-friendly festival includes education, entertainment, crafts, poetry reading, food trucks, and artistic demonstrations. Local community partners will be in attendance to support the event and share organizational information and resources. This event is free, open to all ages, and no registration is required.
OCAPICA’s team will be there to support and educate community members about the importance of taking care of our mental health and well-being.
