Kultivation F.A.M.D. is a two-day festival that will take attendees through an immersive journey and showcase the story of our next generation of Filipino culture and innovation in Manitoba. The festival will infuse modern and traditional elements of our culture by focusing on four key elements (F.A.M.D.):
Above anything, food is a pillar to Filipino identity.
The festival will include food markets (or known as “Palengke” in Tagalog), tasting stations and food demos by Filipino chefs – all with an emphasis on local ingredients from Manitoba farmers.
Filipino artists, such as Jonato Dalayoan of 4Two Designs (who designed Kultivation’s branding!) is leading the art movement here in Winnipeg.
To showcase the work of trailblazers like him, the festival will include an art gallery and live-art demos for Filipino artists.
One thing is guaranteed – if you visit one of our homes, there is 101% chance there is a karaoke machine in our living room.
The universal language of music played a huge role in our upbringing. The Festival will highlight the growing Filipino musicians and DJs who call Manitoba home, through entertainment and live performances.
Manitoba is home to several national award-winning Filipino dance groups such as SIKAT Dance Company and Magdaragat Philippines Inc.
The festival will fuse traditional and modern Filipino dance performances and competitions to create an alluring experience for attendees – from the traditional tinikling to line-dancing classes and even break dance battles.
