Fall festivals this weekend and beyond


The 18th Annual Mid-Autumn Festival
Saturday, September 14th, 2013 from 12:45 to 6:00 pm
at the China Friendship Gate at 10th and Arch Streets


2014 Q Awardee, Asian American United’s annual celebration is a testament to the strength, wealth, and self-determination of the Chinatown community. This tradition highlights the power of community organized cultural festivals to bring people together and claim authorship of their lives. Sitting directly at the intersection of arts and activism, the Mid-Autumn Festival has played a pivotal role in affirming and celebrating cultural strength and diversity, strengthening and building community organizing skills across generations, and promoting pride in the Chinese culture and community. Take inspiration from the vitality and vigor of the Chinatown community, who has successfully determined the course of development in its community again and again, challenging the forces of discrimination and oppression, and standing proudly to brings its priorities to life and to light. We’re gonna go! Hope to see you there! More info here
