Welcome to 31st Barrio Fiesta sa London!

There is no Filipino in UK that would miss this party as it is by far the most expected event by the Pinoy community, estimated at more than 120.000, which have settled in the UK in the last 45 years.

Inherited from the Spanish colonial times, it still preserves the Spanish name for party and this cultural happening of two hectic days full of free events has been celebrated for 31 years. This one, it took place last 18th and 19th of July and as usually the street dances, parades and boat processions were meant to invoke fertility and to honour their national hero: St John Baptist. Barrio Fiesta sa London also pays tribute to famous battles and aims to capture the uniqueness of the Philippine´s party mode.

Acclaimed Filipino artists like: Matteo Guidecelli, Jay-R, Kyla and Reo Brother kicked off the event on the fist day of the party whilst Bea Alonzo, Richard Yap, Zanjoe Marudo and Morissete Amon closed it leaving everybody wanting more dancing and praying for next year´s repetition.
