The Philippines enjoys a rich, vibrant arts and culture because of its multifaceted history and diverse cultural influences that blend Asian, European, American, and Mexican cultures.

Philippine art, which reflects the Filipinos’ own cultural identity, ranges from dynamic visual arts, music, and performing arts to traditional textiles and pottery, and other indigenous and contemporary art forms.

Also known as the “Festival Capital of the World,” the Philippines celebrates over 42,000 festivals year-round, where the communities honor their strong faith, bountiful harvests, and coexistence with nature with great food, folk and modern music, and lively street parades.
