Message From The Lord Mayor Of Melbourne

The City of Melbourne is proud to support the Chinatown Melbourne Post Mid-Autumn Festival event through its Event Partnership Program.

We gather to celebrate the moon at its brightest and roundest. To celebrate abundance. To be with family and friends.

We’re reunited in Melbourne’s historic Chinatown for a festival steeped in tradition and lit with lanterns.

Come together to marvel at lion dances, for cultural performances and kids’ activities. We can even gaze up at the sky and know that our friends in faraway places are seeing the same moon.

In a very contemporary Melbourne tradition, this festival brings us together through good food and delicious mooncakes, which we can devour joyfully.

Enjoy and congratulations to the organisers.

Sally Capp
Lord Mayor
