Autumn Moon Festival

Autumn Moon Festival 

Family and Friends! Come one! Come All!

Enjoy delicious Moon Cakes in Celebration of Denver Kunming Sister Cities

Th e mid-autumn Festival dates back over 3,000 years to moon worship in the Shang Dynasty.  Ancient Chinese Emperors worshiped the moon in the autumn, as they believed that this would bring them a good harvest year.  China’s Mid-Autumn Festival is traditionally celebrated on the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month. The festival is the second most important festival to Chinese people after the Spring Festival.

Every year at festival time,  people go home from every corner of the country and the world to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival with their families.  On that day, Chinese family members stay together, share a meal, admire the full moon, and eat delicious moon cakes.
