Moon Festival

 Thursday, October 1, 2020

2020 Tacoma Moon Festival: 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.

The 2020 Moon Festival will be celebrated virtually!  Due to the pandemic, the Tacoma Moon Festival will not be a live, in-person event in 2020.   Imagine a beautiful graphic representation of the Park that you can visit from home.  As you move around the map on your screen, you can visit the welcome information booth, the Ting, vendor booths, kids activity booths, story booth, calligraphy booth, tea ceremony location, food vendor stalls, beer and wine garden, and even the much-loved t-shirt and poster sales booth.  A comprehensive Moon Festival experience right on your computer!

By hovering over the locations on the map (the Ting, for example) a list of performances and/or activities at that location will pop up.  You can click to see entertainment from the heritage groups, make a recipe from a food vendor, hear a historical reading, watch a traditional tea ceremony, or print off a kid’s activity.

Your participation as a vendor or heritage performer is welcome!  Please click this link to fill out the application form.  Creative ideas are welcome and all are encouraged to apply to participate – bring us your videos, downloadable content, and creative ideas for how you can be represented at the virtual Moon Festival.

The Tacoma Moon Festival would not be possible without community support. Major event sponsors and supporters include Annie Wright Schools, Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation, City of Fuzhou, City of Tacoma, Dr. Zhen Ge and Lucy Zhou, Gottfried and Mary Fuchs Foundation, IBEW Local 76, KBTC Public Television, Pacific Northwest Shop and Proctor Mercantile, Tacoma Arts Commission, Tangram Design, University of Puget Sound Asian Studies Program.
