The Hungry Ghost Festival marks the time of year when tables are turned and the deceased are believed to visit the living. The gates of the afterlife are thrown open and ghosts are free to roam the earth in search of food, entertainment and mischief.

Though the Hungry Ghost Festival gets some acclaim as the “Chinese Halloween,” the holiday actually offers a great opportunity to teach kids about caring for the destitute and less fortunate.

— Festival & Psychic Fair —

The Hungry Ghost Festival is a traditional Buddhist and Taoist festival held in countries across Asia.  In Chinese culture, this is when the deceased are believed to visit the living.  Family members offer prayers to their deceased relatives, offer food and drink and burn hell bank notes and other forms of joss paper.  Learn about the Hungry Ghost Festival and use this opportunity to connect with your loved ones in Spirit at this wonderful psychic faire.  Learn about Buddhist and Taoist traditions in our collection of lectures, and take the time to appreciate this fascinating day.  Readings are 15 minutes, so you have plenty of time to explore different reader styles for only $25.  Energy healers will also be available, using a variety of methods to soothe your soul.  This is a great opportunity to learn about other cultures, connect, and grow.
