Annual Chinese Moon Festival

The Chinese Moon Festival, which is also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is a traditional Chinese Celebration that dates back to the Tang Dynasty. It is celebrated every year on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month in the Chinese calendar when the moon is at its fullest and brightest of the year. Traditionally, it is a family holiday, when 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. For more information about Heritage House, click here.
