Mid-Autumn Festival / Confucius Day

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a time for Chinese people to get together with family and friends, celebrate the harvest, eat mooncakes, and enjoy the full moon. Also known as the Moon Festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival occurs around the same time as the birthday of Confucius, which is traditionally celebrated on September 28.

Each year, the UB Confucius Institute celebrates both events with a series of activities that includes performances, lectures, cultural displays, school presentations, and other activities.
