Rich History. Celebrated for more than 1,000 years in Asia, the Moon Festival marks a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of the moon, and the myth of the moon Goddess, Chang O (or Chang E). The Moon Festival is a distinctly and authentically Asian holiday, which has been likened to a "Chinese Thanksgiving". It is among the most popular holidays in Asia, ranking alongside the celebration of the lunar New Year in cultural significance.

The Autumn Moon Festival in San Francisco is an event where east meets west, traditional meets modern, and a joyous time is had by all in the streets of historic Chinatown.
