Description

Every year the Moon Festival is celebrated on the 15th lunar day of 8th Chinese lunar month. Traditionally, it is a family holiday, much like Thanksgiving and families gather to watch the full moon rise and enjoy pastries made specifically for the event called “moon cakes”. These small cakes along with hot tea will be available for purchase during the festival. Join us for a special evening featuring a lion dance, storytelling, calligraphy, Tai Chi demonstrations, mooncakes, and more!

The Festival is done in partnership with San Diego Huaxia Chinese School, Riverside Campus and Riverside Astronomical Society.


Cost: Free
