June is Filipino Heritage Month. Come Celebrate with Us!

Come and dance, sing and enjoy live music from traditional Filipino, jazz, classical and pop/rock throughout the day with local Filipino-Canadian artists and international special guests on the main stage. As varied are the people of the Philippines, so too are the songs and dances that embody their lives and sentiments.

There will be many dance performances such as the popular ” Tinikling”, to the exoticized “Pangalay”, to the skilled-based interpretation of the “Bangaka” and Spanish-tinged “Jota”. There will even be a Runway Fashion Show, Filipino Martial Arts demonstration and also a monologue of a renowned Filipino Makata, which has been a long forgotten form of poetic artistry.

The two days of festivities will be concluded with a Gala dinner on June 23 at 7:00PM. This will be the first annual Surrey Filipino Heritage Gala Dinner to celebrate the official designation of June as Filipino Heritage Month across Canada.
