Celebrate Harvest Season at LRF’s Chinese Moon Festival
Chinese moon or harvest festivals have a long history, dating back to the Zhou Dynasty (1046 – 256 BC). Also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, it was given a fixed date during the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907 AD). In China, it occurs on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, or the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. In Lahaina, we’re celebrating the Chinese Moon Festival on Friday, September 12 and Saturday, September 13 at the Wo Hing Museum.
A Moon Festival’s purpose is to celebrate the agricultural harvest and express gratitude to the moon with offerings. From 1 to 8 pm on both days, there will be a Farmers’ Corner market in the Wo Hing Museum yard. Chinese tea and moon cakes will be served under the sky to the accompaniment of Hong Zhu’s erhu performance, a fan dance and community lantern dance between 4 and 7 pm each evening. The program ends with a sing-along to the tune of “The Moon Represents My Heart.”
On Friday, Dr. Busaba Yip-Douglas will present a history of moon festivals at 1:30 pm and again at 7 pm. Beginning at 3 pm, visitors can try Chinese calligraphy painting and kids can learn how to make a Chinese lantern or fan, take a planting workshop
or explore moon festival folklore with coloring activities. From 5 to 8 pm, traditional Chinese cuisine will be offered for sale, featuring Roast Duck, Ginger Chicken, Chinese watercress and vegetables. Saturday opens with the Farmers’ Corner market and moon festival presentation by Dr. Busaba Yip-Douglas. From 3 to 6 pm, enjoy Chinese knot tying with Brenda Wong.
Arts and Crafts demonstrations of Chinese lantern making, folklore coloring and a planting workshop will take place from 3 to 7 pm. At 4 pm, Chinese tea and mooncakes will again be served accompanied by the erhu musical performance, Chinese
fan dance, lantern dance and sing-along. Traditional Chinese cuisine will be offered for sale between 5 and 8 pm.
Order individually wrapped Chinese moon cakes to take home:
small for $3, large for $7, decorative box of 8 small or 4 large cakes for $25.
