Welcome – Mabuhay. Virginia’s largest Filipino Festival rolls into town with lumpia, lechon, pancit, empanda, turon, and a million smiles. Enjoy these and other delicious, authentic dishes. Quench your thirst with craft beer, a favorite Virginia wine, or the king of desserts, “halo-halo.” The Festival schedule is full of lively and colorful entertainment including dances from the indigenous tribes of the Mindanao region. Live dance bands, hands-on-crafts and games for the children, specialty vendors, health screenings, and more. Plenty of popular line-dancing with audience participation is a must at this Filipino Festival. FREE ADMISSION.
The Festival is held on the grounds of Our Lady of Lourdes, one of Richmond’s most culturally diverse Catholic Church communities with over 1500 families. The parish has a Blue-Ribbon school for pre-K through 8th grade students. For more information and full menu items, go to www.filipinofestival.org or phone (804) 262-7315. There’s something for everybody at the Filipino Festival. Proceeds benefit various charities.
