Join in the Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration at Lan Su.
Zhong Qiu Jie (中秋節), a.k.a. the Mid-Autumn Festival, is considered one of the most important Chinese holidays. Traditionally taking place on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival is usually on or close to the time of the “Harvest Moon” when the moon appears at its fullest during the autumnal equinox. The image of a full moon symbolizes a happy family reunion.
Visit Lan Su during the weekend of September 18th and 19th when the garden is adorned with countless hanging lanterns. Join in on lantern-making activity, Mid-Autumn storytelling, chopstick challenge, and calligraphy demonstration. Don't forget to try some mooncakes, the classic treat of the Mid-Autumn Festival, at the Garden Teahouse.
This daytime festival is free with garden admission or membership.
