Filipino Fiesta and Flores De Mayo in Hawaii
The Filipino Fiesta and Flores De Mayo is the largest Filipino festival in Hawaii that happens in May every year. It features traditional Philippine songs, dances, food, games, entertainment, mini-concerts, and fun activities and is open to the public for free.
In 2023, the theme is “Itan Ok Tayo Ti Masakbayan!” (Looking Ahead With Pride!). The event showcases the cultural villages of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, highlighting the diverse Filipino-American community in Hawaii.
The Filipino Curriculum Project educates children about Filipino culture through traditional games, dances, storytelling, and more.
The FilCom Center hosts “Habi at Baro,” a comprehensive exhibit of indigenous fabrics, jewelry, and artifacts from the Philippines, collected over three years with grant funding from the Atherton Foundation, the Bank of Hawaii, and the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
