The Annual Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture (FPAC) – from its humble beginning as a project started by the City of Los Angeles to foster cultural understanding among the diverse constituency of the city, FPAC is now a 22-year-strong Angeleno community tradition. FPAC is a series of multi-disciplinary arts events presenting over 500 artists to 25,000 attendees, engaging about 400 volunteers in collaboration with over 100 partner organizations.
Sept. 7th - 8th, 2013 at Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA was its 22nd annual Festival of Philippines Arts and Culture (FPAC). The event is a time to revisit, learn and enjoy Filipino-American culture, try tasty Pinoy foods, watch folk dances, martial arts, and mingle with us! This is a great family and social event! Barangay LA had a large "pavillion" featuring its work and supporting organizations in and around the Los Angeles County area!
