2018 Moon Festival – Saturday, September 15

The Tacoma Moon Festival is an annual celebration of the rich diversity of culture in Tacoma today, brought here by our immigrant communities over the 150 years of the city’s history.

This year the Festival features performance traditions on the Chinese Pavilion Stage from South America and the Caribbean, Spain, Japan, China and, Cambodia. From the lively rhythms of the Steelband and Flamenco to the dazzling costumes and singing of Chinese Opera, to the delicate traceries of Cambodian dance, Tacoma’s immigrant traditions will be on full display!

Activities for kids will include face painting, a number of arts and crafts booths, watching Chinese opera performers apply their elaborate makeup  and, of course, meeting the Moon Princess at 7 pm as the Festival closes. There will be a variety of food options from Dumplings to Burgers, and the Wine and Beer Garden will be open for adults.

It is a family event celebrating our city and its rich mix of peoples, so spend the afternoon in the Chinese Reconciliation Park on Tacoma’s Waterfront!
