The first San Diego Moon Fest Faire was held on September 17 and 18, 2005 by the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association. Wonderful entertainment, shopping, food, and service booths were enjoyed by guests. Major sponsors included Viejas Casino and Jasmine Seafood Restaurant. Dr. Allen Chan, a CCBA board member, and Dr. Casey Chan were essential in helping to organize the event with Head Coordinators Bandy Yiu and Donna Lee. Chan Chiropractic also offered free consultations at the event.
This year’s event was held on Saturday October 7, 2006 at the Kearny Mesa Recreation Center and Park. Mini moon cakes and lanterns were for sale. Wonderful performances included the Shaolin Monks and the late night acoustic musical performances by prominent songwriters and singers Lindsey Yung, Jane Lui, and Terry Matsuoka. This was also an opportunity for the San Diego Asian Film Foundation to promote its huge upcoming festival going on from October 12th to 19th.
