This is my 1st year as Co-Programming Director for the Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture #FPAC26 and I'm so glad to be able to share it w/ friends both old and new! Proud of our FilAm Arts team for making this happen 🙏🏽 !
Please join us & the community in celebrating Filipino American History Month on Oct. 14 @ Echo Park Los Angeles. FPAC is the largest celebration of Filipino arts and culture in Southern California, and attracts crowds of up to 15,000! Our festival is a great opportunity for artists to gain recognition and exposure!
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL OF PHILIPPINE ARTS AND CULTURE (FPAC):
The Annual Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture (FPAC) was first conceptualized in 1990 as part of the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department’s Festivals Program, an arts program designed to address the multicultural constituency of the city. .
Organized by about 100 artists and community leaders, the first FPAC took place at Los Angeles City College on Mother’s Day, May 14, 1992, where 3,000 participants braved the aftermath of the L.A. riots that occurred the week before. Since then, FPAC has only grown stronger and bigger, moving to Cabrillo Beach in 1994, then to Pt. Fermin Park in 2001.
