Now in its sixth year, the Filipino Festival is a community event which showcases the richness of the Filipino culture and promotes a respect for and appreciation of the Filipino heritage. Featuring a delectable cuisine, folk dances and music, the Filipino Festival has attracted thousands of attendees from Richmond and surrounding cities and counties who want to experience the best of the Philippine islands without leaving Virginia.
Utilizing over 600 volunteers, the Filipino Festival is a unique celebration of community, volunteerism and fun for people of all ages. To the more than one hundred Filipino youth in the area who perform dances and songs, the Filipino festival is a culmination of nine months of cultural immersion in bi-weekly classes that teach them their parents’ language, culture, stories, history, dances and songs. It provides a safe environment for them to fellowship, learn and take pride in their rich cultural heritage.
Proceeds from the Filipino Festival benefit various ministries supported by Our Lady of Lourdes Church including Laura’s Closet, the OLL Food Pantry and Lamb’s Basket – all of which serve the residents of the Lakeside area…
What is FCA?Filipino Cultural Association at the University of Maryland, College Park
FCA (Filipino Cultural Association) is a student network organization designed to increase awareness of Filipino culture as well as strengthen the unity among its members through cultural, academic, athletic, and social programs. Formed in 1978-79 under the leadership of Lito Sison, several Filipino students sought to unite other Filipinos in the University of Maryland. Originally called Samahang Filipino, the organization adopted the name Filipino Cultural Association (FCA) in 1981. It then reached its arms out to welcome friends of other nationalities interested in discovering the beauty and excitement of the Filipino culture and history.
The mission of the Filipino Cultural Association is to promote awareness and education of Filipino-American culture for the University of Maryland community. We unite our members through cooperative involvement in cultural, academic, political, athletic, and social programs and activities. Through our shared experiences, we preserve, encourage, and inspire the celebration of our culture. – Article II Mission statement in the FCA Constitution.
What We Do
FCA is a great way to meet people who you can relate to. We have General Body Meetings every other week, where we learn about our culture and discuss matters that are important to us as Filipino Americans. FCA plays intramural sports, including soccer, football, and basketball. FCA also has social events, which includes the semi-formal dance and other dances. We have a dance troupe that practices traditional Filipino dances regularly. The dance troupe takes requests to perform, and it’s a great way to learn cultural dances and also to perform at special events. FCA also networks with other Filipino organizations in colleges along the East Coast. FCA UMCP is in District 6, which includes DC, MD, and VA colleges. We have the semi-formal dance with District 6 schools, and we also have competitions with them, including the famous Turkey Bowl football tournament. Come check it out!
