Filipino Pride Day is a day to celebrate Philippine cuisine, culture, and art. Last year, over 16,000 people attended the annual event with at least 30 vendors and more than 50 unique performances. Every year, Filipino Pride Day is filled with very talented performers providing a mix of traditional and modern Filipino cultural entertainment! From singers and musicians to dancers and artists, of all ages, the day offers so much to enjoy!
This is the only Filipino Festival in Northeast Florida and also serves as a fundraising event. The money raised is donated to worthy beneficiaries that are impacting their communities, locally and in the Philippines.
