What is the Mid-autumn Festival?
The Mid-autumn Festival (Zhongqiu Jie in Chinese Mandarin), also known as the Moon Festival, falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. It often celebrate it by gathering for big family dinners, worshiping the moon, lighting lanterns as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune and eating traditional mooncakes, a rich pastry typically filled with sweet-bean, egg yolk, meat or lotus-seed paste.

This is a FREE event funded by Monash Community Grants Programme. We welcome all people of different cultural backgrounds to come along to celebrate and learn more about this cultural festival!
