The Mid-Autumn Festival, Zhongqiu Jie (中秋节) in Chinese, also known as the Mooncake Festival or Moon Festival, is one of China’s biggest holidays. The festival is a joyous celebration with family reunions, mooncakes, parades, and lanterns.
Although the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on September 29th, it will be celebrated on October 14th but the deadline for registering performers is September 25th.
The Mall of America, in partnership with the local Minnesota Chinese Community and local Ethnic Communities are planning to host a Moon Festival Celebration event at MOA on October 14, 2023. This will be a grand gala and celebration. We are inviting some well-known folk artists to join us in the celebration, promoting exchanges of our ancient culture, arts and heritage with local ethnic communities and artists, showcasing authentic Asian culture to bigger American communities.
As you may know, China has over 10 million of Hmong people living in several southern autonomous counties, closer to Vietnam, Laos etc. Many of Minnesota Hmong people have visited China in the past 10 years. We are inviting Art Troupes from the local Chinese community to join our Moon Festival celebrations with Minnesota Hmong, Lao and Vietnam etc. Ethnic Communities. By bringing these artists from local Chinese and ethnic artists together at the Mall of America, we are hoping to create a cultural performance that would be time-traveling with the ancient Asian community shared heritage, praise the greatness of modern life in Minnesota and America, promote the ancient tradition and heritage in the State, and engage communities with similar cultural and art backgrounds.
Please request a registration form from [email protected] as soon as possible if your organization wants to participate in the performance. The deadline for registration is September 25, 2023.
