Pistahan 2024: SF’s Filipino Cultural Festival & Parade (Aug. 10-11)

The Pistahan Parade and Festival is the largest celebration of Filipino art, culture, dance, food, and music in the U.S, happening on August 10-11, 2024.

Filipinos make up one of California’s largest Asian American communities, and there’s a fabulous world of Pinay and Pinoy creativity and accomplishment to celebrate.

The 31st annual Pistahan is the region’s premiere showcase of Filipino and Filipino-American arts and culture, with pavilions and stages presenting both traditional and contemporary music, dance, art, crafts, cuisine and artifacts. The two-day event kicks off Saturday with the annual Pistahan Parade, the largest Filipino parade on the West Coast.
