There Will Be Ube, and More Scenes From the Festival of Philippine Art


The 26th annual Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture (FPAC) took place on Saturday in Echo Park, and Maria and I brought along the Blogger Kid (the other one was at a party) to take in the sights, sounds... and of course, food.

First launched in 1992 as part of the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department’s Festivals Program, the FPAC continues to grow; this year's theme was Salin-Lahi, or "Bridging Generations," and featured headliners including Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas. The event is organized by the Association for the Advancement of Filipino American Arts and Culture(FilAm ARTS).

Various pavilions showcased wellness, culinary, seniors, literary and youth programs. We, of course, headed straight for the food. Some pics from this year's event:
