There will be 15 food vendors at the venue, including a beer garden which will sell Filipino-branded beer. Filipino cuisine & street food will be available for all to try!
There is a kids zone where children get to play Filipino games.
The stage will be full of non-stop performances which will include Filipino Cultural dances, singing, and entertainment from performers. Celebrity guests this year include Mr. Ian Veneracion and Miss Lovi Poe.
This year Fiesta Filipino is partnering with Arts Commons and guests will gain free access to see Filipino Artwork inside the Arts Commons building. Famous monuments such as the Manila Church will be recreated around the plaza.
Fiesta Filipino will be showing its support for the LGBTQ community by participating at the Pride Parade for the first time this year.
