*****MAHALAGANG PAALALA / IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT*****
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of the Edmonton Filipino Fiesta 2020 due to the current worldwide pandemic. This decision follows the current provincial health measures, including the recently announced restrictions on summer events.
While we would all love to be celebrating with all of you, we simply cannot risk the health and safety of our beloved fiesta community. At these challenging times, we can realign our efforts to the things that matter the most - being with our loved ones and taking care of each other.
We want to thank everyone who has made significant contributions to this year's planning: our hardworking partners, our ever-supportive sponsors, vendors, performers, and volunteers. We will be in touch shortly for any necessary guidelines.
PHIDEAS also takes this opportunity to express heartfelt gratitude to our frontliners and those who help in mitigating the spread of the virus.
Here's to a bigger Edmonton Filipino Fiesta next year, 2021! There is no fiesta without the thousands of Edmontonians celebrating and recognizing the strength and culture of the Filipino community. We are forever grateful for your gift of support since the beginning. In the meantime, in June, let's find other ways to celebrate the Philippine Heritage Month even when we're apart.
For any further inquiries, please email email@example.com or contact Herald Casana at 780-717-9164; or Peter Codizal at 780-668-6595.
Maraming Salamat Po!
Philippine Edmonton Events and Arts Society (PHIDEAS)
