The 8th Tacoma Moon Festival

Due to the pandemic, the 8th Tacoma Moon Festival will not be a live, in-person event. As you navigate the site, you can visit the welcome information booth and take a video tour with docents that have intimate knowledge of the park and its history, you can stop by the Ting to watch a wide selection of dance and musical performances from Tacoma’s most beloved heritage groups and local talents, you can learn at the education booths about resources and programs in the community, and you can pick up a mooncake recipe or download a kid’s activity at the vendor booths. The festival features an online Asian Teahouse with experts sharing brewing techniques, buying tips, and tasting workshops. Beer and Wine Garden will offer special Moon Festival libations for local Tacoma in-store pickups.

2020 Moon Festival Program

2020 Tacoma Moon Festival Logo Design

This year’s festival logo design features a Jade Rabbit, a symbol of selflessness, piety, and sacrifice in Chinese culture. With a mortar and pestle, the rabbit works constantly mixing the elixir of life and medicine to heal mortals. In this design, you will see that the medical plus sign is purposefully used for the stars, the graphic is in a paper-cut style using geometric shapes, and the perspective is meant to be looking back at the park from Commencement Bay. In 2020, the health of our community has suffered greatly. We present the Jade Rabbit as the Festival’s mascot of healing magic and the virtue of giving, and to promote the wellness of our community in these tough times.
