The Tenderloin Museum is thrilled to be a part of the 8th Annual Mid-Autumn Harvest Festival, presented by the Southeast Asian Arts & Culture Coalition. A celebration of Tenderloin's cultural diversity, the Festival helps promote and preserve the arts and culture of the neighborhood's many Asian American communities.
The Tenderloin Museum will be present with a table and pop up exhibit discussing The Tenderloin Times. In print from 1977 to 1994, the acclaimed polyglot newspaper (published in English, Lao, Khmer, and Vietnamese!) provided indispensable perspective on issues of the day for the neighborhood's Asian Refugee communities. Come learn more about The Tenderloin Times' maverick grassroots journalism and its legacy in the TL and beyond! In addition, the Festival will feature a Southeast Asian Street Soccer USA Tournament, a lantern parade, and many culinary delights such as papaya salad and pandan waffle demonstrations.
The Mid-Autumn Harvest Festival takes place at the Tenderloin Recreation Center on 570 Ellis Street (btwn. Leavenworth and Hyde) on Saturday, September 22nd from 11:30am to 4pm. For more information and contact info, visit https://www.aucocenter.org/2018/08/mid-autumn-harvest-festival-2018.html
