WASHINGTON, D.C. – AARP was proud to sponsor the 23rd Annual Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture (FPAC), a celebration of Filipino food, music, dance, crafts and culture, on October 4-5 at its new venue, Los Angeles County’s Grand Park during Filipino American History Month. Nearly 25,000 visitors from around the country attended Southern California’s longest-running Filipino cultural celebration.
As the official sponsor of the FPAC Dance Floor at the Senior Pavilion, AARP hosted free dance performances, lessons, and social dancing for festival attendees. Dancing is a fun and easy way to keep active, get involved in your community, and enjoy longer and healthier lives.
“AARP is pleased to partner with FilAm Arts, a leading presenter of traditional and emerging Filipino American artists in the country,” said Daphne Kwok, AARP Vice President of Multicultural Markets and Engagement, Asian American and Pacific Islander Audience. “We are proud to sponsor a unique event like FPAC where multigenerational families have the opportunity to experience a variety of traditional and contemporary Filipino art and dance.”
