Why we eat mooncake during the Mid-Autumn Festival

The rich and heartwarming culture of the Mid-Autumn Festival season is here, and this year we were treated to a very special celebration by Hennessy X.O and hosted by Harry Shum Jr! The virtual event, “A Moonlight Odyssey,” connected us all with amazing performances by NIKI, Hayley Kiyoko, Guapdad 4000 and Bohan Phoenix, let us sit in on touching stories with filmmaker Eddie Huang and the founders of Omsom, and taught us a few special Hennessy cocktails with mixologist Inga Tantisalidchai.

To continue to honor this amazing holiday celebrated all over the world, let’s go on our own little odyssey to explore the legends that have survived thousands of years to bring us the rich culture, the fun holiday and the tasty mooncakes we have today.

A classy evening of insightful conversations, showstopping musical performances and engaging activities marked Hennessy X.O’s Mid-Autumn Festival celebration.

Hennessy’s free special digital event “A Moonlight Odyssey,” which was streamed via Facebook Live on Sept. 23, featured some of our favorite Asian American celebrities playing an unexpectedly lively game of mahjong, preparing must-try food and drinks and performing songs every music-lover should hear.
