The annual Mid-Autumn Moon Festival celebrates a the full harvest moon and is a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest, and to celebrate and share the generous bounty with family. We will be celebrating with our Los Angeles family in Chinatown style! Traditional Chinese cultural demonstrations alongside hot local bands mark a celebration uniquely Angeleno and uniquely Chinatown. Come by for our annual Dessert Eating Competition, or to taste Mooncake samples from Chinatown’s popular bakeries, or to take a peek at the full moon in her glory through scientific telescopes!
