A FILIPINO Heritage Night was held recently in Oakland, California to celebrate and promote Filipino American art, music, film and dance.
Also dubbed The Filipino American Arts Exposition (FAAE), the event took place last August 31 at the spacious Championship Plaza. All participants who purchased a special ticket were also able to attend a pregame event, as well as enjoy a traditional food item and receive an exclusive A’s Filipino Heritage giveaway item.
The Filipino American Arts Exposition (FAAE) is a vital part of the rich tapestry of cultures and ethnic communities of the San Francisco Bay Area through its promotion of Filipino American art, music, film and dance, said Oakland Assemblymember Rob Bonta.
Mabuhay! I was thrilled to be able to provide a message at the Oakland @Athletics game tonight in celebration of #Filipino Heritage Night. We're working late in Sacramento tonight, but I wanted to make sure I thanked the A's for celebrating our vibrant & proud community! Go A’s! pic.twitter.com/m73SJOOma9

Filipino Heritage Night included free @bayani_art x @athletics art posters!
You cannot have Filipinos over and not have food. That is sacrilege, really. it is. As the Athletics got things started on Championship Plaza they were sure to include specialty #AthleticsFoodTrucks for Filipino Heritage Night!
Here is a great video of the Kababayans doing #tinkling.
