A moon festival event was held in Coquitlam's All Saints Parish Hall on September 14, 2019. It was preceded by a lantern-making workshop in Mackin House on September 7, 2019.

The moon festival event included:

  • Story-telling

  • Lanterns, which were given to children to take home

  • Performance: traditional dance, music and song

  • Moon cakes: the traditional holiday treat

The event was produced by the Coquitlam Heritage Society and it was carried out with the help of numerous community volunteers.

A media story was written about the event in The Source (PDF)

One of the videos below is a production about our event by VTV4, Vietnam's international TV channel. The sound track is in Vietnamese, but it contains good photographic coverage of the event. Another of the videos contains the same content, but with English subtitles. The subtitled one is not in HD.
