Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival at UT Oct. 10

The Confucius Institute at The University of Toledo is hosting a celebration of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, the second grandest gala in China, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10 in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium.

“The festival will feature performances, activities, free food and prizes,” said Xinren Yu, international programs coordinator for the UT Center for International Studies and Programs. “Attendees will be able to learn about this traditional Chinese festival and experience different aspects of the Chinese culture.”

Activities will include Chinese knot-making; Chinese bracelet-making; mask painting; paper cutting and folding; Chinese calligraphy; and a Chinese tea ceremony.

Performances will feature dance, tai chi and Chinese instruments.

The Mid-Autumn Festival also will feature the “China in My Eyes” photo contest. Photos will be displayed and attendees are asked to vote for their favorite shots.

The Confucius Institute at The University of Toledo serves northwest Ohio by providing education in Chinese language and culture, and supports the development of China-related scholarly research and academic programs. It also offers opportunities for cultural exchanges between China and the United States.
