KULTURA FESTIVAL 2018
KULTURA FESTIVAL 2018
Kultura Festival is the Midwest’s premier Filipino American food and arts event. Carefully curated to appeal to those who personally identify with Filipino culture and the merely curious or uninitiated, Kultura Festival is proud to be a part of the inaugural Chicago Tribune Food Bowl, a three-week long celebration of “chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, innovators, entrepreneurs, critics, and connoisseurs who put Chicago at the forefront of the nation's food and drink scene.”
Before the islands of the Philippines were renamed, the Spanish called them “Las Islas de los Pintados,” or The Islands of the Painted Ones.
This Saturday, May 19 at 1:00 PM to 3:00PM, prePhilippine mambabatok (tattoo practitioner) Lane Wilcken will share about our ancient tradition at
Niehoff Urban Studios (2728 Vine St., Cincinnati, OH)
We ask participants to contribute $10 - $15 (suggested donation).

See you this weekend!
In partnership with Alliance of Filipinos for Immigrant Rights & Empowerment (AFIRE), Usapang Pagkain explores how Filipino food can best serve our community through free, monthly events. The event series resists the notion of Filipino food as incompatible with healthy living. It is a response to the dearth of culturally-relevant health education and the epidemic of cardiovascular disease and diabetes in our community. Usapang Pagkain will bring generations of Chicagoland Filipinos together to share our stories with one another and collectively learn practices that center our health, community, and food. Each event will highlight a Filipino dish or dishes, including recipes. Specifically organized to provide a much-needed community space for dialogue on health and wellness, Usapang Pagkain will examine the importance and potential of Filipino food in nourishing our body and soul.
Unless noted, all events are free to the public and will take place at the HANA Center (4300 N. California Ave. in Chicago). Schedule and venues are subject to change. Please check afirechicago.org and filipino.kitchen for the most up-to-date information.
Started in 2015 by food media and events group Filipino Kitchen, Kultura Festival aims to highlight the best in Filipino American food and arts, and is carefully curated to appeal to those who personally identify with Filipino culture and the merely curious or uninitiated. Kultura Festival coincides with the start of Filipino American History Month, a nationally commemorated holiday every October since 2009, with the passage of US House Resolution 780 and Senate Resolution 298.
