If you’re in San Diego, don’t miss this ‘delicious’ PH festival in October
The lively and diverse fabric of Filipino culture is poised to shine in San Diego, California, on Oct. 14, Saturday, as the eagerly anticipated So Sarap! Philippine Festival returns for its 2023 edition.
This annual event showcases the affluence of Philippine and Filipino American arts, culture, and history in a modern setting. San Diego holds the distinction of housing the second-largest Filipino diaspora community outside the Philippines, making it the perfect location for this cultural extravaganza. As such, So Sarap! Philippine Festival serves as a conduit of diverse influences, traditions, and innovations from the Filipino community.
This family-friendly festival coincides with Filipino American History Month. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Waterfront Park at 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, CA 92101, will transform into a cultural hub where families and friends can come together to celebrate Filipino heritage.
The festival is presented by the PASACAT Philippine Performing Arts Company, which is dedicated to preserving and promoting Filipino culture through the arts.
Beyond being a cultural celebration, the So Sarap! Philippine Festival serves as a bridge for the exchange of commerce and culture between the Philippines and San Diego. It’s a unique platform for local, regional, national, and international artists, performers, and talents to shine on the global stage.
