PIFA is the longest running event attracting the biggest NHPI audience in the US. With an event size such as this, community and services based organizations have unmatched opportunities to engage attendees. Many of our participants including dignitaries, entertainers, vendors, and attendees travel from all over the country to participate in this amazing festival. With such an abundance of participants, this weekend is a rich contributor to the attraction and tourism industry of the City of San Diego.
Our festival is preserved forever in the hundred of thousands of pictures and video shared world-wide on social media and with friends and family in all reaches of the world who share a love of family, tradition, and culture.
