Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival

Join the Museum of Food and Drink, Ming River, and Junzi Kitchen on Saturday, September 28th to taste, experience, and celebrate the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival! Held each year on the full moon of the eighth month of the Chinese lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates the bounties of the harvest and reunion of families.

In ancient times it was common to make offerings to the moon, the most important of which was the alcohol offering. In some parts of China and Vietnam, a ritual is made of drinking alcohol while gazing at the moon.

Come enjoy baiju and bites under the moonlight while reciting Li Bai’s classic, “Drinking Alone by Moonlight.”

Doors open at 6:00 pm. Last call at 7:45 pm. Tickets include admission to Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant, two drinks from Ming River, and bites from Junzi Kitchen.
