Moon Festival September 28, 2018

A free event open to the entire community. We invite families and their children to come enjoy refreshments, community resource tables, face painting, lantern decorating, cultural performances, and other fun activities. Moon Festival is a traditional Asian holiday representing the completion of a harvest season. The celebration features lantern parades that signify a wish for the sun’s light and warmth to be returned after a long winter. Family and friends often share mooncakes as they give thanks and gaze at the moon during its fullest peak. For inquiries please contact info@seacma.org

Asian Festival Scholarship

Now in its tenth year, the scholarship is reserved for Asian American students who are graduating from a Worcester county public high school and are planning to attend college in the fall of their graduating year. The scholarship award is given directly to the student to help with costs of school books, supplies and/or tuition costs. Five awards of $500 are given out each year at the Asian Festival on the last Sunday in the month of June. This year, the awards will be presented on Sunday, June 25th, 2017.

This scholarship award is made possible through vendor sponsors, sponsorship from community organizations, support from local businesses, and donations from individuals in the Greater Worcester Community. Successful candidates must reside and currently attend a Worcester Public High School. Candidates must plan on attending college and present proof of acceptance, demonstrate strong academic achievement, have performed community service, and be able to attend the Asian Festival to volunteer and receive the award if selected.
