The Autumn Moon Festival Street Fair takes place in Chinatown each September around the 15th day of the 8th lunar month of the autumnal equinox to celebrate the summer harvest, and to pay homage to Chang-O, the Chinese moon deity. On the auspicious day, the Chinese gather in their homes to dine together and consume moon cakes; it's their own special Thanksgiving. Acrobats, Chinese opera, dancers and magicians entertain the crowds at Grant Avenue. Street vendors sell a variety of traditional Chinese wares and food. Come to the Autumn Moon Festival Street Fair and learn all about Chinese culture.
Please note that for 2020 the festivities have moved online.
