Mid-Autumn Festival 2021 is coming soon in the month of September 2021, falling on the 15th day of the eight lunar month. It’s one of the most important festivals for the Chinese communities around the world. While the ongoing global pandemic has restricted how we can celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival, we must not let this global pandemic take away the significance of Mid-Autumn Festival and how we can spend time bonding with family and loved ones.
Wan Qing Mid-Autumn Festival by Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH) is a well-loved annual cultural event! Having visited Wan Qing Mid-Autumn Festival at SYSNMH over the past few years before the global pandemic situation hit us, it was fun, lively and packed with family with children. From live performances, activities and nice lanterns display, it was a weekend of fun and bonding time for families with children.
Even though there are safety restrictions in place due to the ongoing global pandemic, we still can celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival and learn about Chinese traditions and customs from the comfort of your own home with the well-loved Wan Qing Mid-Autumn Festival 2021 Digital Edition!

They feature the artist’s characters who are enjoying mooncakes and each other’s company under the gentle and watchful eye of Ngaew’s Moon Rabbit. This Moon Rabbit was created specially for the Mid-Autumn Festival, it’s inspired by the Jade Rabbit from Chinese folklore which keeps Goddess Chang’e company on the moon.
