Join us for Tacoma's first Moon Festival, an annual celebration at Chinese Reconciliation Park.The Moon Festival is a popular Asian celebration of abundance and togetherness dating back over 3,000 years to China’s Zhou Dynasty. Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節 "Zhongqiu Jie" in Mandarin Chinese), is a traditional holiday widedly celebrated in Asia that marks the end of summer and autumn’s equinox, when the moon is supposedly at its fullest and roundest (thus the nickname “moon festival”).

This annual waterfront event will also highlight the progress of a collaborated project between the City of Tacoma and its citizens to build the commemorated Chinese Reconciliation Park.
