Aliwan Fiesta is an annual gathering of Philippine festivals that promotes Filipino art, culture, heritage, and ingenuity for the world to see.
The annual 3-day Aliwan Fiesta which started on April 25 and ends on April 27 is organized by the Manila Broadcasting Company and the Cultural Center of the Philippines, in cooperation with the cities of Pasay and Manila.
The festival attracts thousands of spectators from different corners of Manila, nearby provinces, from all over the Philippines, and from abroad. Hence, it is dubbed as “The Philippines’ Grandest Festival of Champions” as it brings various Philippine festivals in one setting.
Now on its 16th year, Aliwan promises another vibrant and colorful festival
Prepare your bottled water, sunblock and camera as Good News Pilipinas shares this list of 4 reasons why everyone should experience this year’s Aliwan Fiesta.
1. SHOPPERS BAZAAR
If you love local delicacies such as Ilocos’ Vigan Empanada, longganisa and bagnet, or Iloilo’s Piaya and more, you will surely enjoy Shoppers Bazaar.
The 3-day Bazaar has an array of regional delicacies you don’t usually find in malls.
But if you are not foodie, then try to check out some native textile, sandals, accessories, T-shirts, malong and other art pieces made by our local craftsmen.
You will surely find something that would match your #OOTD at low prices yet of the best quality.
Aside from great things you can purchase – be it a souvenir or pasalubong – it is also your chance to give back by supporting our local artisans and entrepreneurs.
Shoppers Bazaar is located on Sotto St., CCP Complex, Pasay City.
