Fiesta sa Wellington is an event that will showcase the diversity, colour and beauty of the Philippines – and Filipino culture in New Zealand – over this coming Labour weekend.

The highlight of Fiesta sa Wellington is expected on Saturday 24 October at the Lower Hutt Town Hall and Horticultural Hall. Filipino culture will be on show with events such as the Paralong Fiesta – participants will have the chance to try traditional Filipino games at this free event.

The Filipiniana cultural show to be held in the evening will include talents performed by pageant contestants and a variety of traditional Filipino dance performances. Tickets will cost $15.

On Sunday 25 October, also in the Lower Hutt Town Hall, is the Bb Filipinas-NZ Beauty Pageant. General admission will be $25 and premier admission $30.

Market stalls will be open outside Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua on Saturday and Sunday from about 8.30am-5.30pm and in the Lower Hutt Horticultural Hall from 10am–11pm on Saturday. The stalls will provide a delectable range of culinary delights both handmade locally and imported from the Philippines.

The festival also includes sports competitions for basketball, badminton, volleyball, golf, billiards, bowling and table tennis.
