2018 Mid-Autumn Festival

Happy Mid-Autumn! This year, Mid-Autumn takes place on Monday, September 24th! The Mid-Autumn Festival is honored all throughout Asia, celebrating family, harvest and the full moon. San Mateo County Libraries invite you to join us and celebrate with paper lantern-making, Chinese brush painting, Chinese Button Knot bracelet crafts, moon cakes, and more!

We're also bringing live music performances with Creative World Music Ensemble, whose music is a fusion of cultures and techniques, as well as introduction to Chinese Traditional Music by Tranquil Resonance Studio. This introduction will compare the guqin and guzheng instruments!

Join us at the Foster City Library on Sunday, September 23 at 2:00 PM for a traditional Chinese Opera performance! The Bay Area Chinese Opera Association will present and discuss a number of opera themes, props, and costumes.

Check out our events or browse our catalog for fun books, music and DVDs that explore the Mid-Autumn Festival.
