UBCI Announces Mid-autumn Festival Photo Contest and Online Celebration

The University at Buffalo Confucius Institute will host two events to celebrate the 2020 Mid-autumn Festival. During this time of social distancing, we hope you can participate in our online festival and send in your photos!

On October 2, 3:00-4:00 pm, the Confucius Institute will host a free online Zoom event with UB faculty and students talking about their experiences in China with the Mid-autumn Festival. Students will also have a chance to test their China knowledge with trivia and riddles. Click here for more information about this online event.

The Confucius Institute is also organizing a Mid-autumn Festival Photo Contest. Anyone is welcome send in photos of homemade mooncakes, awesome shots of the full moon on October 1, or other ways of celebrating the Moon Festival (in a socially-distanced manner).

Photos should be emailed to for inclusion in our online Mid-autumn Festival album. Photos will be posted on our website and Facebook page. Confucius Institute hoodies or other prizes will be awarded for the best photos.
