Wan Qing Mid-Autumn Festival
A Weekend Of History And Culture

Organized by Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, Wan Qing Mid-Autumn Festival is an annual cultural event for the community to discover and experience the customs and traditions observed during the celebrations. This year’s festival presents an exciting weekend of offerings suitable for the young and the young at heart, including heritage trails around the Balestier precinct, guided tours of the museum’s galleries, mooncake tasting, lantern-making workshops, storytelling of Mid-Autumn tales, alfresco concert performances, and more.

The Memorial Hall’s lantern installation also promises to make for great photo-moments under the stars. Produced by local artist and sculptor Lee Yun Qin in collaboration with the Memorial Hall’s youth volunteers, “Moonflowers of Mid-Autumn” is a luminescent outdoor art installation that pays homage to this ancient Mid-Autumn folklore and symbolizes the desire for union during this festive season. Featuring over 200 stalks of sustainable glow-in-the-dark flower sculptures crafted from intricate wire mesh and solar-powered LED bulbs, this installation transforms the Memorial Hall’s lawn into an enchanting mid-autumn flower garden in celebration of this much-loved festival.

Activities are free unless otherwise stated. For more information, visit www.sysnmh.org.sg/en/whats-on/events/wan-qing-mid-autumn-festival-2019.
