Quincy August Moon Festival Set For Sunday August 21, 2016

QUINCY, MA More than 10,000 attendees are expected to experience one of the biggest August Moon Festivals in Massachusetts on Sunday, August 21 in Quincy. The event will be even more accessible this year, located in the parking lot of the North Quincy Center MBTA station on the Red Line. For many years the festival was previously held on Hancock Street in Quincy Center.

The 29th Annual Quincy August Moon Festival, hosted by Quincy Asian Resources Inc. (QARI) will open with a traditional Lion Dance at 11:00 a.m., followed by hours of live entertainment, amusements, food vendors, fun activities and cultural traditions for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy. The organizers are excited to present the community with a fresh festival layout in the new location.

The festival is part of the global celebration recognized by many Asian cultures, and originates from an agrarian tradition celebrating a new harvest when the moon shines the brightest.

This years event will feature a new Youth Village, with crafts and food demos run by and made for teens. Festivalgoers can also look forward to Chinese painting demos, amusement rides and pony rides. The South Shore YMCA will host a Children's Area with free games, prizes and face painting. Foodies can anticipate a food court abundant with various offerings of desserts, bubble tea and savory dishes from restaurants and food trucks.

More than a hundred high school students and adult volunteers from the community have been working hard for the last few months to help make this a memorable event for everybody to enjoy. The festival is free to the public thanks to our presenting sponsor, South Cove Community Health Center, along with dozens of other businesses, community organizations, and government and social service agencies, many of which will be tabling at the festival with information to share with attendees.


In the event of bad weather, the event may be rescheduled for Sunday, August 28, 2016 with announcements made on QARIs Facebook page and local media channels. Information is available at www.quincyasianresources.org.
