Families with Children from China New England

Boston Chinatown August Moon Festival

  • 14 Aug 2016
  • 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Boston's Chinatown (Harrison Ave, and Beach, Tyler, Hudson, Essex, and Oxford Streets)

Boston's Chinatown comes alive with lion dances, martial arts, firecrackers, folk dances, and lots of vendors for the annual Chinese Autumn Moon Festival.


Each year, the Chinese Benevolent Association of New England organizes a full day event to celebrate this important holiday. Come enjoy stage performances of Asian folk dance, lion dance, Chinese opera, and other entertainment. You can also browse the many vendor tables throughout the streets of Chinatown for food, gifts and souvenirs.

Although this 3,000+ year old Chinese festival traditionally falls on the 15th day of the 8th Lunar month - in other words, late September/early October - Boston celebrates it in mid-August.  It's the perfect excuse to spend an August Sunday in Chinatown.
