Ancestor worship is a Chinese tradition that goes back thousands of years. “Ching Ming” or “Remembrance of Ancestors Day” is therefore a key holiday in the Chinese calendar.

On this weekend, you may view hundreds of families visiting the cemetery to sweep/clean their ancestors’ graves and repaint the inscriptions on the headstones to show their respect. The families will bring food offerings too.

Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland will be serving refreshments to families and Family Service consultants will be available to discuss the new burial plots and niches.

Please note that the time indicated was from last 2019. We expect to be the same this year.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
