Introduction

 

The N.Y.C. Autumn Moon Cultural Festival Ceremony is the largest AMCF public event in New York’s. Last year, the event attracted 30,000 spectators.  A cultural celebration of color, culture and spectacle, the events were covered by domestic and international media, including the Associated Press, Reuters, USA Today, New York Times, MSNBC, TVB Hong Kong, CCTA (China’s Central TV), all Chinese American Media outlet, among many others.

 

The largest pan-Asian event on the East Coast, this colorful spectacle features traditional lion and dragon dances, riddle (poetry) contest, autumn moon cake tasting, beautiful Chinese traditional lantern exhibit, beauty queens, clowns and cultural performers from all across the world, including but not limited to China Hong Kong, Bolivia, Mexico, Columbia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Started in 2003 to promote traditional culture within the Chinese American community, the festival has evolved into one of the city’s major tourist attractions with cultural performances, information and educational, food booths, food tasting, free gift give-aways with extensive worldwide media coverage.

 

Last year, with joint efforts with our presenting sponsor, Health Plus, Verizon, McDonald, ASA Collage, On Leong Merchants Assoc., many community business, and community leaders in making this event a success.

 

Last year, the Chinese Overseas Agency in China donated hundreds of colorful, traditional autumn moon lanterns and a thousand children’s lanterns, traditional gown & cultural dresses to the organizer in making this event more colorful and attractive.

 

This year’s unique event provides a terrific opportunity for your corporation to gain maximum exposure on a local, national and international level. By participating as a sponsor, you will reach a wide selection of emerging and niche markets, the fastest growing diverse middle-class in NYC’s Manhattan which include the Chinese American and Asian American markets, the New York City tourism market, metro area consumers and China. Absolutely no other event in New York provides direct access to these important consumer segments like the Autumn Moon Festival and China Week Festival..

 

Your corporation’s participation at the Autumn Moon Festival and China Week is a great way to show their support of the Asian American community (particularly in lower Manhattan/Chinatown, which was greatly impacted following the events of September 11th) diversity at the workplace and cultural events in New York City.

 

Your support with this cultural event, at this time of unstable financial, natural disaster, and political crisis that affects us all, will bring a feeling of hope, relief and happiness. It will help bring families together, which is the best support one can live for.

 

 

 

What is Autumn Moon & China Week?

 

 About Autumn Moon

 

The Autumn Moon Festival is on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. It’s also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival. At this time, the moon is at its fullest and brightest, marking an ideal time to celebrate the abundance of the summer’s harvest.

 

The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the two most important holidays in the Chinese calendar & Asia (the other being the Lunar New Year). Farmers celebrate the end of the summer harvesting season on this date. Traditionally, on this day, Chinese and Asian family members and friends will gather together for reunions. When the full moon rises, families get together to watch the moon, eat moon cakes, and sing moon poems. It’s similar to Thanksgiving for most Asian families.

 

It is also a romantic holiday. Lovers spend such a romantic night together tasting the delicious moon cakes, listening to stories and watching the full moon. Traditionally, brightly lit animal and fruit lanterns are often paraded around by children.

 

About China Week

 

Our China Week mission is to promote a deeper understanding of the rich traditional Chinese culture and better understanding of the modern day China.

To strengthen relationship with mainstream Americans and our younger 2nd and 3rd generation Chinese Americans through the involvement of top world cultural performers, cultural arts and crafts from different regions of China, world Chinese modeling, festive foods from different regions, an array of traditional and modern style moon cakes, colorful traditional lanterns exhibited and much more.

This includes the Chinese American and Asian American markets, the New York City tourism market, metro area consumers, and most importantly, brand recognition in China’s fast growing market.

 

 

China

 

New York’s Chinatown has long been a gateway into the American market for China based companies and brands. With global interest in the Chinese market at an all-time high, many domestic corporations are now looking towards Chinatown as a threshold into China. This is not surprising when you consider the facts: (1) a large percentage of Chinese-American residents travel to China on a regular basis, (2) most residents call China on a weekly basis, (3) Chinatown is a must-see destination for Chinese expatriates and tourists, and (4) Based newspapers work closely with their main bureaus in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai. (5) Tourists from China into New York and the U.S. are growing at a welcoming rapid record pace.
