73rd Annual Moon Festival

Experience this beautiful tradition celebrated throughout Asia and now presented in LA!

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a popular harvest festival celebrated by the Chinese dating back over 3,000 years. Farmers celebrate the end of the harvesting season on this date and family members and friends gather to gaze at the bright harvest moon and eat moon cakes. As a homage to this time of year, LAs Chinatown hosts the 73rd Annual Harvest Moon Festival with a modern twist on this traditional holiday.
