2022 Recap – First Ever Hamilton Fiesta Extravaganza Attended by Thousands!

History was made celebrating Filipino heritage and culture in a very successful weekend in the city of Hamilton.

The Hamilton Fiesta Extravaganza is a two-day summer festival promoting multicultural awareness and appreciation of the Philippine heritage. The main goal of this celebration is to continue to build strong Filipino community in different cities in Canada while enjoying lively music, cultural performances, games, raffle draws, and the overall Filipino fiesta experience.

This joyous Filipino fiesta experience was organized by the Hamilton Philippine Heritage Festival, in cooperation with Canada Fiesta Extravaganza. Amping up the crowd is the non-stop entertainment brought by the dancers and performers; and not to mention, “Asia’s Nightingale” Ms. Lani Misalucha!

The iWantTFC Sama Saya celebrity guest really lived up to her title as the “Asia’s Nightingale” as she lovingly shared beautiful music to the cheering crowd. Everyone loved singing along to her songs. Moreover, the amazing emcees, local bands, and artists surely did not disappoint in giving their best.

Adding to the excitement were the raffle draws with cash prizes and items from sponsors, and a roundtrip travel to the Philippines! Winners are posted in the Hamilton Fiesta Extravaganza Facebook page.

Aside from the sing and dance performances, games, raffle draws, interactive booths, and band shows, the Kalayaan Riders recognition day also took place. Vendors in the event added to the Filipino fiesta vibes, providing a variety of yummy Filipino delicacies, refreshments, and other novelty items to promote the Filipino culture.

This event is also one way of recognizing the achievements of the Filipino Community that has contributed to the social and economic fabric of Canada. Because of the many smiles seen in this celebration, this summer festival is referred to as the Festival of Smiles.
