The prestigious Confucius Institute (CI) at Miami Dade College (MDC) will hold its 4th Annual Harvest Moon Festival alongside a public ceremony honoring Confucius on Saturday, Sept. 14., from 1:30 â€“ 8 p.m. at the Collegeâ€™s North Campus. Festivities will take place in the Lehman Theatre and include a discussion forum, an award ceremony, Chinese refreshments and performances featuring traditional Chinese music, folk singing, dancing, a fashion show and other activities. The event is free and open to the public.
The Harvest Moon Festival at MDC attracts hundreds of people and is recognized, alongside the Chinese New Year, as one of the two most important Chinese holidays. It is the annual â€œfamily reunion dayâ€ in which Chinese families and friends gather to spend time together, admire the bright, full harvest moon and share traditional meals, which include moon cakes. The CIâ€™s celebration of Confucius is a highly lauded ceremony where members of the community will pay their respects to the world-famous philosopher and educator. In keeping with the CIâ€™s mission, the colorful celebration will offer everyone in Greater Miami, a free opportunity to experience authentic Chinese culture, traditions and arts.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
