One of the highlights of any cultural group is its food and Filipino food does not disappoint. A range of items will be available for attendees to purchase, including: lumpia (Filipino-style eggroll), chicken adobo, bar-b-que, pancit (noodle dish), and several delicious Filipino desserts. Food sold a la carte. The prized beer of the Philippines, San Miguel, will also be available for purchase (photo ID will be verified).

With over 7,000 islands, over 13 different ethnic groups, and between 120 and 175 languages, the Philippines embodies a miriad of diverse cultural elements. The three main island groups of the Philippines - Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao - will be showcased at the event. Attendees will come to learn where these groups are located, significant cultural differences, and other fun facts about each group.
Both traditional Filipino music and dances as well as modern day Filipino artists will perform throughout the day. From the national dance of the Philippines, Tinikling, to up and coming singers, Filipino Fiesta RVA will rock the Cultural Center of India's roof!
Don't forget to bring the kids! We will have fun and educational activities, including parol (Christmas lantern) making, sungka, sipa, and other katutubong laro (native games).
