Aloha and Mabuhay!
To help celebrate Filipino American History month, we invite you to join us at the annual
Maui Fil-Am Heritage Festival®
at the Queen Kaahumanu Mall
on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Act 15 (2008), designates October as Filipino-American History Month throughout the State of Hawaii “to commemorate the contributions of Filipino-Americans to the history and heritage of Hawaii and the United States.”
Now in its sixth year, the Festival is a family event that promotes and perpetuates the Filipino culture. This year, the festival will commemorate the last sugar plantation in Hawaii. We hope you can save the date and consider supporting the event by buying an ad for $100.
- Outreach. The 2010 Census shows Filipinos constitute the largest Asian ethnicity in Hawaii. The Festival held during the Filipino-American History Month of October is a great way to reach out to the Filipino community.
- Drive sales. The Festival brings the community together with a crowd of more than 9,000 with our signature events.
- Promotion. As a sponsor, the Festival would help increase brand awareness and visibility for your company. The Festival will be promoted on social media, radio and posters.
- Participation. There are sponsorship or promoter options to get your company more involved in the activities planned.
In addition, as part of the month-long celebration, there will be a Philippine flag raising ceremony at the County Maui Building on Monday, Oct. 3, 2016 at 10 a.m.
The Festival is presented annually by the Maui Filipino Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Mahalo!
