Filipino Barrio Fiesta

October 2 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

In Partnership with Livermore Filipino-American Organization

Livermore Valley Arts and Las Positas College present

Filipino Barrio Fiesta

10 AM – 8 PM on the Bankhead Plaza

October officially marks Filipino American History Month in the United States. October’s significance as Filipino American History Month is due to the first recorded presence of Filipinos in the continental United States when on October 18, 1587, “Luzones Indios” came ashore from the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Esparanza and landed at what is now Morro Bay, California. In November of 2009, both the United States House of Representatives and Senate passed laws – House Resolution 780 and Senate Resolution 298 respectively, officially recognizing October as Filipino American History Month in the United States. LFA will honor Filipino American History Month with the seventh annual Filipino Barrio Fiesta – a free, family-friendly community event featuring dance, music, food, art, and history.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
