Mooncake festival began with an indoor concert in the Litang, one of the main public spaces in the village. Most attendees were villagers.

Outside of the Litang, there are also many activities gathering residents, artists, community workers and villagers. This celebration event is organised by Jiazong, a community work organisation set up by the city government and works especially with disadvantaged groups like elderly.
