The Confucius Institute at the University of Memphis (CIUM) will host a “Day in the Park in China” to celebrate the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. The event will be held Saturday, Sept. 29, from 2 to 8 p.m. in the Helen Hardin Honors Hall on the U of M campus.

The event will provide opportunities to participate in time-honored traditions that have been woven into Chinese culture for thousands of years, including Chinese chess, checkers, calligraphy, mahjong, jianzi, knot-making, paper-cutting, paper-folding, and karaoke. Chinese food will be served.

“This is a wonderful way to bring people together in the community to celebrate the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival in a similar way that people celebrate in China at this time of year,” said Dr. Hsiang-te Kung, director of CIUM. “We are honored to host a program that celebrates the traditions surrounding the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. It is a joy to be able to offer these activities on the University of Memphis campus.”

Admission is $8 for those ages eight and up and $5 for children under eight. Guests will receive a hand-stamp at the door, so they can come and go as they like.
