The 2nd Autumn Moon Festival will take place on Saturday, September 8, 2018, on Clement Street between 5th and 8th Avenues, from 11 am to 3:30 pm. This festival is organized in collaboration with Clement Street Merchants Association, Richmond District Neighborhood Center, Community Youth Center, the Office of Assemblymember Phil Ting and the Office of Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer.
Autumn Moon Festival celebrations have been held throughout Asia for well over 1,000 years. This holiday is a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of the moon, and the myth of the immortal moon Goddess, Chang-O, who lives in the moon. The Moon Festival is often considered a “Chinese Thanksgiving” because of its celebration of gratitude and inclusion of abundant food – including the popular moon cake.
The Autumn Moon Festival will be a fun, family-friendly event where attendees will have a taste of the cultural diversity of the Richmond District.
