Experience it this year virtually, when the festival website debuts on October 1, 2020
Presented by the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation (CRPF), the Tacoma Moon Festival is an annual outdoor celebration held at the Chinese Reconciliation Park to honor the rich diverse cultures of the Puget Sound region, brought here by our immigrant communities over the 150 years of the city’s history.
Due to the pandemic, the 8th Tacoma Moon Festival will not be a live, in-person event. Instead, imagine a beautiful graphic representation of the Park that you can visit from home. As you move around the map on your screen, you can visit the welcome information booth and take a video tour with docents that have intimate knowledge of the park and its history, you can stop by the Ting to watch a wide selection of dance and musical performances from Tacoma’s most beloved heritage groups and local talents, you can learn at the education booths about resources and programs in the community, and you can pick up a mooncake recipe or download a kid’s activity at the vendor booths. The festival will feature an online Asian Teahouse with experts sharing brewing techniques, buying tips, and tasting workshops. Beer and Wine Garden will offer special Moon Festival libations for local Tacoma in-store pickups.
