Moon Festival

Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival is a traditional festival celebrated in Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Korea and throughout Southeast Asia. It is one of the most important holidays in Chinese culture, only next to the Chinese Lunar New Year. The history of the Mid-Autumn Festival dates back to over 3,000 years. The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese Lunisolar calendar ( September 21st in 2021) with a full moon at night. On this day, the Chinese believe that the moon is at its brightest and fullest size, coinciding with harvest time and symbolized the family reunion.


The Chinese Culture Club (中华文化社) set up a booth on the campus to display the Moon Festival celebration on Hamilton campus, and bestow their best wishes to all the east Asian heritage student groups on our campus, and want to share this unique culture to all the Huskies. The Chinese Culture Club displayed a lot of highlights of the Moon festival during the display, such as Moon Cake, Lanterns, traditional costumes and handcrafts and so on. A lot of the display artworks were hand made by the members. We hope this event will promote the awareness of culture diversity on our campus and bring extraordinary experiences to all the Huskies!
