MABUHAY! Welcome to the Philippines Pavilion!

THE PHILIPPINES PAVILION

2017 marks Canada’s 150th birthday, and the launch of our newly revamped pavilion! Come celebrate with us in Hall C at the Prairieland exhibition grounds, where you will be fed, entertained, and treated like a true Filipino.

WELCOME TO THE PHILIPPINES

With over 100 indigenous tribal nations and the influence of the Spanish Empire, the Philippines is an archipelago rich in culture with more than 170 spoken dialects and a wildly eclectic cuisine.

Stay a while and sample some of our “street food”, indulge with a few refreshing island drinks, and be entertained by our talented resident dance group, Kumintang Folk-dance Ensemble. Feeling adventurous? We challenge you to come learn our national dance, Tinikling, or eat balut, a culinary fascination and a Filipino delicacy not many can stomach! Make sure to come back after 10 PM when our pavilion transforms to Manila at Night.

DIVE IN AND TAKE PART IN OUR TRADITIONS

Tucked away into the Western Pacific Ocean and comprised of 7107 islands, some home to the highest-ranking beaches in the world, the Philippines is a tropical paradise you should visit at least once in your lifetime. So why not start here: at the 2017 Philippines Pavilion!
