Are you living on Maui or planning to move here by this fall and are looking for a way to see Maui in a whole new light? If you’re stuck in a rut and doing the same activities over and over again then why not try something a little different. Perhaps this September you may consider attending the annual Moon Festival in West Maui’s Lahaina where you can eat delicious food, explore a different culture and join in on all the fun and excitement this festival has to offer.
The Chinese Moon Festival Celebrates Autumn Harvest is slated for Sept. 22nd and will last all day from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. that day. The event is free to the public and will occur at the Wo Hing Museum at 858 Front Street in downtown Lahaina. Guests can expect a food day of colorful lanterns, offerings to the moon goddess, specialty teas served in the garden along with beautiful traditional music performed on a guzheng harp.
There will be cultural activities including calligraphy and knot tying, and kids can also learn how to make paper lanterns. Local artisans will also be showcasing their work and painting the moon in honor of the festival while the youth will perform the traditional fan and ribbon dances. Chinese food will also be sold at the event along with traditional mooncakes that will be available for sale all week long!
If this sounds like an event that you and your whole family can enjoy then we highly encourage you to attend. It’s kid-friendly and is a great way to see Maui in a whole new way. Every year the Chinese Moon Festival is put on by the Lahaina Restoration Foundation. This local 501 © 3 foundation’s purpose is to restore, preserve and protect the physical, historical and cultural legacies of Lahaina in honor of the era of the Hawaiian Monarchy.
