On August 19, the 25th Quincy August Moon Festival was held in Quincy Center on Hancock Street. This festival is a signature event of Quincy’s Asian community and the premier Asian cultural event on the South Shore.

This year’s festival was presented by Quincy Asian Resources, Inc. (QARI) with generous support from many sponsors, such as State Street and South Cove Community Health Center. Thousands of visitors enjoyed the 6-hour multicultural celebration, watching performances on two stages, visiting over a hundred booths by businesses and organizations, some of which offered games and rewards.

Last year’s festival was briefly interrupted by thunderstorms. This year, the blue skies and low humility made it a perfect day for the August Moon Festival.
