Join the Fairbank Center for an afternoon of lively performances, delicious food and drink, cultural displays, music, crafts, tea ceremonies, giveaways, and of course, mooncakes!

In honor of our 60th anniversary, our Mid-Autumn Festival event celebrates all things China at Harvard. So come learn about our innovative research, practice Chinese calligraphy, try your hand at making Chinese tea, take selfies in our Harvest Moon photo booth, experience original music and traditional dancing, and find out more information about what’s on offer from Harvard’s student organizations at this large-scale, free public event.

Featuring performances by Harvard College Chinese Music Ensemble, Harvard Visual China, Harvard Breakers, Tai Chi Master Yon Lee, and a performance of “Yangqin Concerto” specially composed in celebration of the Fairbank Center’s 60th Anniversary by Sam Wu ’17.

We look forward to celebrating with you and your friends!
