2019 Mid-Autumn Moon Festival
September 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Join us on Sept 13 for the 2019 Mid-Autumn Moon Festival at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver.
With a history that goes back over 4,000 years, Chinese tea culture is truly an art. Since ancient times, tea has been an important element of inspiration in Chinese poetry. Tea drinking is not just a simple act of consuming a beverage, but a spiritual enjoyment– a ritual that brings people together in appreciation and reflection. Many a poet would compose with a cup of tea upon their table, the complex fragrance and flavour stimulating the senses and imagination beneath the glow of the bright moon.
Take part in this tradition at the 2019 Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, and experience firsthand the intertwined connection between tea, art, and the moon. Taste the six types of Chinese tea, enjoy mooncakes and music, and make your own lantern! This year’s celebration will also feature a tea poetry contest and the opening of Lam Wong’s year-long artist residency at the Garden.
Enjoy the festivities with your family, friends and loved ones on September 13, 2019.
