Friday, September 29
The City of Irvine will host a Mid-Autumn Festival at the Great Park, Friday, September 29, from 5 to 9 p.m.
This family-friendly festival includes education, entertainment, crafts, food trucks, and artistic demonstrations. Local community partners will be in attendance to support the event and share organizational information and resources. This event is free, open to all ages, and no registration is required.
The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional festival celebrated by many East and Southeast Asian communities. It is the second-most important holiday after Lunar New Year and dates back over 3,000 years, when the Emperor of China worshiped the moon for bountiful harvests.
The community is invited to celebrate this honored tradition with friends and family at the Great Park, enjoying live musical and dance performances, cultural exhibits, and a festive atmosphere. The City is holding its festival the day prior to the traditional observance, to allow the community to celebrate with other religious or social groups on the day.
