Tacoma Chinese Park Moon Festival
2017 TACOMA MOON FESTIVAL
The Tacoma Moon Festival is just A WEEK AWAY!
Please join us on Saturday, September 16, from 2 pm to 7 pm, to celebrate the 5th 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 theme of this year’s celebration is “Immigrant’s Stories.” The entertainment stage at the Fuzhou Ting will feature music, dance, and theatrical performers from a number of heritage communities; program includes a Native Pride Dance group with Tacoma Public Schools, Kim Archer Music, Cambodian Classical and Folk Dance Northwest, Jekesa Marimba, Tello Hernandez, and a final performance of Beijing Opera by Seattle’s Hwa Sheng Chinese Opera Club.
Our famous “Mooncakes” will be available for sale at the CRPF Tent along with other vendors and info booths. Tours of the Reconciliation Park will be led by park history docents. A wine and beer garden will be available for adults, and there will be hands-on craft activities for adults and children. As the festival closes at 7 pm, a parade of lanterns will be led by the Moon Princess.
