Mid-Autumn Celebration At SCCC
Uncover Traditions

Beyond the popular folklore of Chang’e and Hou Yi, Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates the bountiful harvest to come. Lantern walks, mooncake tasting, and lantern riddles - these are familiar practices observed by the Chinese community in Singapore during the Mid-Autumn Festival! Taking place on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, the festival has its roots as a harvest festival when farmers gave thanks to the moon for a plentiful harvest. One of the most popular stories associated with the festival is the legend of Chang’e who swallowed an elixir of immortality and fled to moon, to prevent it from falling into a villain’s hands.

To encourage a better appreciation of our distinctive Chinese Singaporean culture, the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre has launched a series of online programmes to highlight the customs and traditions of this festival. Let their friendly and knowledgeable Kaki share with you the stories and beliefs behind the traditional Chinese festivals; or hone your skills at lantern riddles with riddle enthusiast Qiu Rong as she breaks down the ins-and-outs of these challenging brain teasers in an engaging online tutorial. Viewers can also watch the heart-warming animation Moonlit Memories, produced in collaboration with students from Nanyang Polytechnic ( to bring back fond memories of the festivities. Families and friends can revel in moon-themed classic hits as The Apex Project performs a Mid-Autumn medley at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall. The music video is the first instalment of a series, in partnership with the National Heritage Board, which features Singapore’s homegrown talents performing at the National Monuments.

Whether you are a culture buff, someone who wants to learn more about your heritage, or simply want to have an enjoyable time with loved ones, Mid-Autumn with SCCC promises something exciting in store for everyone. Old or young, this is the place to rediscover the allure of Mid-Autumn.
