Renao Street: Mid-Autumn Celebration

Renao Street 2019

The University of Adelaide will be celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival on the eve of the OzAsia Moon Lantern Parade with "Renao Street (热闹街)", a free community event in Hub Central from midday to 5:00 pm.

All over China, public spaces including streets, markets, parks and squares bustle with life, colour and noise. Along the streets, hawkers ply their trade, markets are crowded with shoppers and stalls are piled high with produce. The Chinese word for this is renao (热闹), which literally means ‘hot and noisy’. And that’s exactly the atmosphere of this unique event at the University of Adelaide when the Student Hub Central will be transformed into Renao Street (热闹街) to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. Enjoy food, music, activities and all the vitality and excitement of Chinese hubbub in the Hub.

Come and join in with prizes, giveaways, performances and activities, including

  • An Asian food market
  • Free moon cake tasting
  • Music and cultural performances
  • Free tea tastings
  • Free photo booth
  • Prizes and giveaways
  • Multicultural games and activities
  • Traditional cooking demonstrations
  • Student clubs

All staff, students, alumni and the community are invited to experience this on-campus public cultural event.

There will also be a public lecture in the Napier Lecture Theatre from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, and a Chinese Music performance in Elder Hall on Sunday 20 October as part of OzAsia Festival.
