Dear Organizations, Performing Groups, and Media, 
The ACCC 2021 Harvest Moon Festival in-person event will be held on Sunday, 9/19/21 from 4 PM to 7 PM at the Antelope Park Bandshell. We want to invite you to participate in this cultural event.  

This is the first in-person cultural event since the pandemic. We are very happy that we can finally return to a normal state of life, although we cannot completely relax our vigilance against the variant viruses. 

The Asian Community & Cultural Center strives to support the Lincoln community and the various cultures it encompasses. By supporting this event, you are supporting refugees and immigrants in Lincoln. We are grateful for your support.

Attached is our event flyer. Please feel free to post it on your social media and share it with your families, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and people you know that may be interested in joining our event. 

Thank you all in advance!
