Pacific Islander Association Festival- San Diego

Planning on traveling to San Diego in the next week? If so, great timing, as the Pacific Islander Festival Association (PIFA) is having their grand event on September 20 and 21, 2014. This annual festival is one of the, if not, the biggest Pacific Islands festival in North America.

This festival has it all: processions, dancing, singing, a cultural village, information booths, and, of course, food! It’s a beautiful event that truly captures the vivid cultures of the Pacific Islands.

Here is the Entertainment Schedule for this year’s festival:

The PIFA Website also has a page that contains extraordinary photographs from past festivals. I highly recommend taking some time and browse through the myriad of photos. You will be able to get a sense of how extraordinary and wonderful this event is!

So, drop everything. Plan. And go!

See you there!
