Anzac Day is here!
The Cabramatta Moon Festival, happening on September 23 (Sunday), celebrates the traditional mid-autumn harvest.
The month of July was book ended with the arrival of the ‘blood moon eclipse’, but it also signaled the beginning of preparations for the Moon Festival. Also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, it is a traditional Chinese harvest celebration marked by the full face of the moon. It is also highlighted by gatherings of family and food in town squares and villages.
There are several myths and legends surrounding the origins of the event, but the past gives way to modern, inter-cultural exchanges all throughout the world. And this is no different in the Cabramatta Moon Festival that will start on Sunday, September 23. Happening in the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta, expect a colourful display of Southeast Asian cuisine and traditional dance and music. Try out the different treats such as the moon cake and sticky rice balls, and witness live bands and theater productions across two stages. Don’t forget to stay for the amazing fireworks show to end everything with a bang!
Drawing in 90,000 people from across the state to last year’s festivities, this one-night event promises to be a fun and exciting time for kids and families.
