Canberra Moon Festival (CMF) is the FIRST multi-Asian cultural festival event in Canberra.
Moon Festival (aka Mid-Autumn Festival) itself in the lunar calendar celebrates harvest and reunion in many Asian cultures. CMF intends to present the concept of “One Community, One World, One Big Family” to our beloved multicultural capital city. It is created to become a cultural sensation and tourist attraction for not only Asians to celebrate the festival but also all Canberrans and visitors across Australia - the ”September National Multicultural Festival”.
This year CMF is expecting to entertain 35,000+ guests over 3 days (Friday 8 - Sun 10 September) with fun, educational and family-friendly programs for all ethnic and age groups. Activities range from a DJ disco night, ongoing professional and community performances, and exotic and local food/drink stalls to family-friendly amusement facilities.
