The Vaughan Fiesta Extravaganza was held in line with the Canada Day long weekend last July 2 and 3, 2022 in 1441 Clark Avenue West, Vaughan, ON.
Filipino Canadians were able to get in touch with their roots, while other nationalities got to know the family-oriented community that Filipino-Canadians can offer. The celebration is a great avenue to showcase the Philippines’ rich culture and beautiful people.
This event recognized the many contributions of the Filipinos in nation building including their accomplishments and talents in different fields. Highlights of the fiesta were incredible performances, good food, and a ton of amazing games and surprises.
Aside from this, the crowd was up close and personal with iWantTFC celebrity guest, Yam Concepcion! She wow-ed the crowd with her songs and not to mention, her drum solo!
The Filipina actress shared her sentiments of being away from home, but this summer festival made her feel at home with the smiles and warm welcome of Filipinos who joined the celebration. Other nationalities also attended the two-day fiesta, showing their support to the growing community in the area.
The overall joyous Filipino fiesta experience was served with the goal to establish a stronger community in Canada by connecting more Filipinos together. With the many smiles shared plus new connections formed among the crowd, this summer festival was surely a success!
