This two-day event used to be known as the Barrio Fiesta, but in 2013 was rebranded simply as the Philippine Festival. There are over 30,000 Filipinos living and working in Tokyo, and this significant population gives the Philippine Festival a great local atmosphere. There are a variety of performances on the main stage with the announcements made in a mix of English and Tagalog to a largely Filipino audience. At the other end of the event area you’ll find a long strip of restaurants selling traditional food such as lechon and adobo, and, of course, San Miguel beer.
Event details are taken from official sources whenever possible. It is always prudent to check the official event website before attending to make sure that there have not been any changes. If you know of an error in the calendar, then please let me know through the contact form.
