CWRU Asian Mid-Autumn Festival

The entire campus community is invited to celebrate the Asian Mid-Autumn Festival with CWRU! Come enjoy authentic food from various countries in Asia, as well as activities and traditions associated with the Mid-Autumn Festival. Student and community booths will offer games and activities to keep everyone, including family, entertained. The first 200 CWRU students to arrive will receive a free giveaway! Make sure to bring your Case ID! 

This year’s Asian-Mid-Autumn Festival celebration will be Friday, September 13 from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm in Thwing. The event is free and open to the public!

Throughout much of Eastern Asia, the successful harvest is celebrated when the moon shines bright in the sky. The Asian Mid-Autumn Festival is about bringing families together and goes by many names including Tet Trung Thu, Tsukimi and Chuseok. Traditions vary, but often family and friends celebrate the harvest of rice and wheat by eating special desserts like mooncakes, sharing stories, and hanging lanterns. The moon is an important part of the holiday, and it's common for celebrations take place at night to provide an opportunity to enjoy it. CWRU hopes to inspire that same holiday feeling on campus for all students, staff, faculty and community members who join us for this event.

The Asian Mid-Autumn Festival is sponsored by the Center for International Affairs, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Office of the Provost and First-Year Experience and Family Programs.

You can help bring the Asian Mid-Autumn festival to the CWRU campus and community by volunteering to assist with set up, decorating Thwing, preparing student and community tables, serving food, and clean up! The volunteer sign-up form can be found here:
