Tacoma Chinese Park Moon Festival
On Saturday, September 24, from 2 pm to 6 pm, Tacoma will celebrate culture and community at the 4th annual Tacoma Moon Festival, held at the Chinese Reconciliation Park on the Ruston waterfront. The event is free and open to all ages.
Presented by the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation, the festival features music, dance, and theatrical performers from a number of heritage communities. The theme this year is “Teahouse” with four Tacoma-area performances from East Asian cultures which traditionally celebrate Moon Festivals in September, and a final performance of Beijing Opera by Seattle’s Hwa Sheng Chinese Opera Club.
The Teahouse will serve various teas and snacks, including the famous “Moon Cakes,” a wine and beer garden will be available for adults, and there will be hands-on activities for adults and children. As the festival closes at 6 pm, a parade of lanterns will be led by the Moon Princess.
Organizers for the festival are still seeking corporate and individual sponsors for the 4th Tacoma Moon Festival at Tacoma’s Ruston Waterfront.
