Mid-Autumn Festival

We’re celebrating the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival with the Alliance of Chinese Culture & Arts. Below you will find musical performance from performers around the world and corresponding works of art selected by Hou-mei Sung, curator of East Asian Art. The Mid-Autumn Festival, also called “Moon Festival,” is one of the largest festivals in Mainland China and East Asia. Similar to American Thanksgiving, families and friends get together to celebrate a good harvesting year and enjoy delicious food.
