As in previous years, the services of the Philippine Consulate General in Sydney will be on hand to cater to the consular and diplomatic needs of the community.

Participation from various community groups and emerging young talents who will present their cultural dances and musical performances is anticipated.

There will also be children’s playground and rides, karaoke participation, arts and crafts painting workshops and many more.

This year’s 29th Kultura festivities are aligned with The United Nations 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development in recognition of the tremendous potential of the tourism industry.

Tourism accounts for some 10% of the world’s economic activity. To contribute to the fight against poverty and foster mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue is all at the heart of UNESCO’s mission.

The Miss Philippines Australia and Miss Charity Queen Australia beauty pageant brings together young Filipino-Australian women from all over the country.

Ranging from 16 to 25 years of age, these young women take to their communities and share their diverse set of talents, skills and passions in order to raise funds for charities across Australia and the Philippines.

Nine talented, young and beautiful Filipino-Australian ladies from NSW and Queensland will vie for the Miss Philippines Australia and Miss Charity Queen 2017.

These beauties are now very busy and focus on their charity activities and rehearsals until they’re ready and prepared for the actual judging on the evening of 2nd October pageant.

High profile community leaders and VIP guests in the field of pageantry are invited to be in the Board of Judges. Other special guests will include Philippine Diplomatic representatives as the new Consul General will arrive in November, Federal and State Members of Parliament, representatives of Local Councils and area multicultural communities, Filipino-Australian community leaders and other dignitaries.

The Fiesta Kultura event will honour the Filipino-Australian community in partnership with the NSW Government’s commitment to a cohesive and inclusive society in which cultures, languages and religions of all citizens are accepted and appreciated.

The event is organised by non-profit club PASC Inc., now in its 41st year, which stays as a strong voice supporting social cohesion and inclusiveness.
