Bulacan Daily: Sining Pandayan 2016

I have been too preoccupied with other things that Fiesta Republika came and went without me partaking in at least one of the many colorful activities they have lined up to commemorate the very first Philippine Republic formed in Malolos City centuries ago. It was too late when I chanced upon the tarps and the banners promoting the activities around the city in time for the festival. I’d be sure to keep an eye out on this celebration next year so we can participate.

Anyways, we had a chance to go out of our cocoon early this month for the Million Volunteer Run 3 {which I have yet to post on ze mum blog, by the way} and just in the nick of time as I saw this banner hanging at the eaves of Graceland Mall coming from the event at the Capitolyo Park.

There were similar art fairs held in Glorietta and Trinoma recently that I was really raring to check out and hoping to purchase a couple of brush pens to jump-start my calligraphy journey this year. But I was not able to make it on either of these fairs. Good thing one will be held soon and just here in my city!

Sining Pandayan 2016 will be held this coming 22-23 February, 2016 at the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center at the Capitolyo Grounds. Here are the list of the activities for the event:

  • Likhang Kamay: Arts & Crafts Fair ~ 22 & 23 February, 2016, 7am
  • Pandayan Bookshop 3rd Poster Making Contest ~ 22 February, 2016, 11am
  • Dance Sculpture Competition ~ 23 February, 2016, 11am
  • Caricature Seminar for Teachers ~ 22 & 23 February, 2016, 7am

The fair will be open from 7am-5pm and admission is only Php10, so if you happen to be free on these days, do not forget to check out the Sining Pandayan 2016 and have an enjoyable day making the crafter and the creative in you happy!
