Music & Dancing * Health Fair * Fashion Show * Food!

For the 43rd year, the Stockton Filipino community will hold The Barrio Fiesta, with live entertainment and dancing, cultural displays, a fashion show by Filipino designers, a health fair and, of course, food.

The Barrio Fiesta will take place on August 14 beginning at 11am at The Filipino Center Plaza, at 6 West Main Street in Downtown Stockton, which is managed by California Human Development. The event is free and open to the public.

Health Fair activities will be held from 11am to 3pm and will include blood pressure and blood sugar screening, breast feeding consultation, employment and educational resources and more.

Some of the Filipino agricultural workers who originally organized the event back in the 1960s and ‘70s will be on hand to join in the festivities for this longstanding and popular event.

The Barrio Fiesta is presented by the Associated Filipino Community of San Joaquin County. Additional partners for the health fair include California Human Development, BiNational Health Week, and San Joaquin County WorkNet.
