Trung Thu Moon Festival at North Carolina
Sep 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us in celebrating the diversity of Wake Forest at the inaugural Trung Thu Moon Festival on September 8, 2018 from 5:30-9pm. Tet Trung Thu, as it is known in Vietnam, or the Mid-Autumn Moon festival as we refer to it in America, is customarily held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month and is one of the two most important festivals in the Vietnamese culture. Steeped in tradition, this ancient celebration revolves around children and is thought to be a time when parents had the opportunity to catch up with their loved ones after the busy summer harvest was completed. Families will enjoy learning about the Vietnamese culture through music, stories, dance, arts and crafts and food. The event will conclude with lion dancers leading a children’s lantern parade. Vietnamese food and other concessions will be available for purchase. For more information visit www.wakeforestrencen.org/event/trung-thu-moon-festival
