Mid-Autumn Moon Festival


The change of the season brings our big annual Mid-Autumn Moon Festival!  This year, the Harvest Full Moon undergoes a special lunar eclipse throughout the night
 and the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre will be helping us take in the eclipse atop our ting.  

Join us with the entire family for a unique opportunity to revel among musicians, magicians, artists, performers, tea masters, bagua-style kung fu masters, and astronomers. Learn about Chinese traditions, have moon cakes and celebrate this age old tradition with local storytellers including a book-reading by Loretta Seto! 

As one of our biggest signature annual festivals, we welcome all to help us celebrate it in style.  Perfect for families, the young and the young at heart and lovers of culture, history, and the arts.
