KalayaanSF & The Bay Area Filipino Community
An Annual Celebration of Filipino Culture and Pride

KalayaanSF, named after the Filipino word for “independence”, is a series of events held in San Francisco during the month of June to commemorate and celebrate the anniversary of the Declaration of Philippine Independence, which occurred in Kawit, Cavite on June 12, 1898.

Organized on an annual basis by the Filipino-American community in the Bay Area with the support of the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco, the celebration showcases Philippine culture and heritage, drawing attention to the contributions Filipinos and Filipino-Americans have made to their communities.

We aim to unite and inspire members and friends of the Filipino-American community to help advance this year’s theme: Spark * Connect * Empower
