ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Metro Vancouver Philippine Arts and Culture Exposition Society (MVPACES) presents the annual PHILIPPINE DAYS FESTIVAL event every second weekend of June as the official Filipino Canadian celebration of Philippine Arts and Cultural Heritage in British Columbia, Canada.
This year’s festival event takes place on June 9th & 10th, 2018 at its landmark venue – the Waterfront Park of North Vancouver, BC.
The celebration highlights the unique Filipino tradition of a “Barrio Fiesta” atmosphere, set with an array of Filipino cuisine, song and dance stage performances, field parade demonstrations, and a showcase of various products and businesses in the more than 75 Food & Merchandise booths situated all around the park. The event also marks the commemorative celebration each year of the anniversary of Philippine Independence of June 12, 1898.
Thousands of people from all over the Metro Vancouver area, neighboring towns and cities, to include visitors from across the border in Washington State, USA, grace the 2-day event to join and experience the world renowned Filipino talents and hospitable family culture. This event is the Filipino community’s contribution to Canada’s vibrant multicultural society!
