A Message from Our General Chairperson

Welcome to the 2016 Philippine Cultural Committee/Pista Sa Nayon, the annual festival in our scenic and historic City of Vallejo. This festival marks the 30th Anniversary of the founding of the Philippine Cultural Committee of the Filipino Community of Solano County, Inc.

We produced this festival to commemorate the Philippine Independence and promote the Filipino culture. Therefore, we are inviting you to relax and enjoy the entertainment we have prepared for you.

The Philippine Cultural Committee (PCC) will present the 2016 Pista Sa Nayon (Philippine Cultural Celebration) at the Vallejo Waterfront on June 4, 2016, which will attract a record number of guests.

Pista Sa Nayon has grown to be the largest FREE Filipino event on the West Coast and is the place to visit the first Saturday in June. Starting with a grand parade, there will be over 100 booths, delicious food, and activities for all ages, and a day-long first-class entertainment. This year’s celebration will feature a distinctively strong Filipino Cultural focus from beginning to end. We feel that this will be a good promotional venue for your organization and/or business.

Vallejo has been rated as the most diverse city in the United States, according to the New York Times. The city is home to over 120,000 people, including over 30,000 Filipino-Americans. Vallejo’s ties to the Philippines date back to 1898, when ships that fought in the Battle of Manila Bay left Mare Island for their long journey across the Pacific Ocean. Since then, Filipinos have come to Vallejo to work, buy homes, raise families and start businesses. Filipinos are a vital economic force in Vallejo with one of the highest household incomes among ethnic groups and high rate of home ownership. Add to the Vallejo mix the visitors who come to our Pista Sa Nayon from every corner of Northern California, as well as Southern California, you will begin to see the truly dynamic synergy of this exciting event!

Please look over the Sponsorship package and Vendor Booth Application consider being a part of this year’s rewarding Pista Sa Nayon celebration as well as the Advertisement/Agreement form.
