Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month of the Chinese calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar. See the Chinese Calendar.
In 2014 it takes place on September 8th. Chinese people will have a three-day holiday from September 6 to 8.
When Mid-Autumn occurs at the very end of September or early October it is usually combined with National Day (October 1) holiday for a week-long holiday.
