Attendees will come to learn where these groups are located, significant cultural differences, and other fun facts about each group.
ENTERTAINMENT - Both traditional Filipino music and dances as well as modern day Filipino artists will perform throughout the day. From the national dance of the Philippines, Tinikling, to up and coming singers, Filipino Fiesta RVA will rock the Richmond Convention Center roof!
