The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival or Zhongqiu Festival, is a popular harvest festival celebrated by the Chinese for over 3,000 years. 

The fun includes live music, roaming acts such as lion dancers and kung fu artists, hands-on cultural workshops, art gallery openings, food trucks, artisans, ghost story-telling, a trained capuchin monkey and a Chinatown Photo Booth.

Children of all ages can enjoy art projects; Chinatown's favorite bakeries provide complimentary moon cake sampling. Be sure to catch the cooking demonstrations from some of Chinatown's best chefs.

Families can view the moon in great detail using state-of-the-art telescopes provided by Griffith Observatory.

Plenty of street and event parking is available. The festival is easily accessed via Metro Gold Line rail from the Chinatown Station.
