The Autumn Moon Festival

Please join us!

Celebrate the bounty of the harvest…the fullness of the moon…the myth of the moon goddess. 

Inspired by the Legend of Chang’e, the Moon Goddess of Immortality, the Autumn Moon Festival is the second grandest holiday (after Lunar New Year) in China. Celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, it is a chance for friends and families to come together, enjoy the harvest and to celebrate the moon, a symbol of unity.

This year we are celebrating the Moon Festival with two exciting events!

Please join us at the gorgeous Pagoda Red Showroom on September 17 for our third annual Autumn Moon Festival Gala, honoring 2016 Illumination Award Honoree Mr. Henry Fogel!  Purchase tickets or become a sponsor here!

We will be presenting a performance of “The Legend of Chang’e” in partnership with the Art Institute of Chicago on September 15, featuring artists from the Joffrey Ballet, Beidou Kung Fu and Flying Fairies Dance Troupe. Admission is free!  Learn more here!
