Moon Festival

Tacoma Chinese Park Moon Festival

2017 TACOMA MOON FESTIVAL

On Saturday, September 16, from 2pm to 7 pm, Tacoma will celebrate culture and community at the 5th annual Tacoma Moon Festival, held at the Chinese Reconciliation Park in Old Town.  The event is free and open to all ages.

The theme of this year’s celebration is “Immigrants’ Stories,” and the festival features music, dance, and theatrical performers from a number of heritage communities. Besides performances from East Asian cultures which traditionally celebrate Moon Festivals in September, there will be a Marimba Band, a Poetry Reading and a final performance of Beijing Opera by Seattle’s Hwa Sheng Chinese Opera Club.

Our famous “Moon Cakes” will be available for sale along with variety of teas. 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 7 pm, a parade of lanterns will be led by the Moon Princess.
