October 6, FILIPINO PRIDE!
Do you know what the biggest cultural event of the year is at the Jacksonville Landing? Its the Filipino Pride festival! In its fourth year the festival is a 12 hour event that celebrates the rich history and culture of the Filipino people. Jacksonville has a strong community of Filipino heritage. Here is a quote from the Landing Event page:
Filipino Pride Day is a day to celebrate Philippine cuisine, culture, and art. Last year, over 16,000 people attended the annual event with at least 30 vendors and more than 50 unique performances. Every year, Filipino Pride Day is filled with very talented performers providing a mix of traditional and modern Filipino cultural entertainment! From singers and musicians to dancers and artists, of all ages, the day offers so much to enjoy!
