The August Moon Festival is a momentous holiday that celebrates the harvest and the moon as symbols of prosperity, happiness and unity in Asian culture. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the festival in Quincy, one of the largest August Moon Festivals in the Northeast, bringing together guests from all over Massachusetts for a celebration of culture and community spirit.

This year, August Moon returns to it’s street festival roots and will be showcased in it’s brand new downtown location on Coddington Street.
