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.
