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.

2022 Moon Festival Program

The Tacoma Moon Festival will be held on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at the Chinese Reconciliation Park (1741 N. Shuster Parkway, Tacoma).  The Park is located on the Tacoma Waterfront near Old Town along Ruston Way.

The 10th Annual Tacoma Moon Festival is a live festival featuring dancers and musicians, artists and craftspeople and hands on activities for kids and the young at heart. Food vendors and the Wine and Beer Garden will feature local food and drink.  Visitors can go to the popular teahouse tent to sample varieties of tea. Docents will be on site to lead tours of the park, explaining the tragic expulsion of the Chinese community in 1885 and the City’s commitment to build the park as a place of contemplation and renewal.

Parking is limited and drivers are encouraged to park up the hill in the parking lots in Old Town and walk down to the park.

The 10th annual Tacoma Moon Festival is produced by the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation, in partnership with the City of Tacoma and Metro Parks. The event would not be possible without community support, volunteers, as well as individual and organizational sponsorship. The festival annually draws large crowds of attendees from all over the Puget Sound area, and with the event finally returning to in person and admission remaining free this year, more are expected to attend.
