On Saturday, December 1st, join KAPISANAN as we participate as a community partner in the first ever Toronto Paskuhan Village at Metro Toronto Convention Centre!
Toronto Paskuhan Village will be the first event of its kind for the Filipino community, as it aims to capture the festive mood and the sights and sounds of the season in the Philippines and bring it to Filipino-Canadians in Toronto.
KAPISANAN will be setting up our VINTA Retail Gallery Pop-up Shop as a preview to the VINTA launch. We will be selling Filipinana for kids, cultural accessories, artwork by our community of emerging artists, parols, and more!

SEE YOU THERE :)

The inception of Toronto Paskuhan Village came from the common aspiration of both TFC and TMPI to bring the best of Filipino culture and heritage to the Filipino-Canadian community here in Toronto. Both agreed that it is about time to celebrate our culture and heritage in the most awaited and most important season of the year – Christmas.
Toronto Paskuhan Village will bring the warmth of the Christmas season, the sights, the smell and sounds of a traditional Filipino Christmas to a cold winter Toronto night!
Here are some of what to see and expect from this event:
- The venue will be transformed into a Christmas village adorned with the traditional Filipino Christmas components such as the Philippine Christmas lantern – the parol, the nativity scene and more.
- A unique and all-day long shopping experience for all attendees.
- Entertainment by local talents
- Lots of raffle prizes and more!
