About the Tacoma Moon Festival
Presented by the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation (CRPF), the Tacoma Moon Festival is an annual outdoor celebration held in the month of September at the Chinese Reconciliation Park to honor the rich diverse cultures of the Puget Sound region, brought here by our immigrant communities over the 150 years of the city’s history. This annual waterfront event also highlights the progress of a collaborated project between the City of Tacoma and its citizens to build the commemorated Chinese Reconciliation Park.
Annual Celebration since 2012
This family-friendly celebration brings together businesses, residents, community groups and visitors from all areas of Pierce County and beyond for a safe, fun, cultural experience. The one-day festival introduces the Asian traditions of the Mid-Autumn Festival and the legend of the Chinese Moon Princess, while sharing the arts and heritage of Tacoma’s many different immigrant cultures through stage performances, crafts and other activities. The inaugural Tacoma Moon Festival was held on Saturday, September 29, 2012, and attracted over 3,000 festival goers. Receiving great media attention through our local TV, radio station, newspapers and social media, this event provides an important opportunity for building community and connections.
