June and July 2015 – two big Pinoy events are taking place during these months – Philippine Independence Day Ball and Barrio Fiesta.
These wonderful occasions bring us together. We need to set aside our differences and think as one people, one nation!
This sense of unity, of having common heritage should continue to keep Filipinos in Austria together. It is this sense of community that will allow us to face the tremendous challenges confronting our lives as Filipinos living in a foreign land.
We have heard and read the lessons of unity many times before. But it bears repeating as we ponder on the significance of these celebrations – that is, to work together in order to attain greater heights and fully enjoy the fruits of independence.
May the commemoration of the 117th Philippine Independence and the traditional Barrio Fiesta inspire each one of us about our power and responsibility to help achieve true progress for all Filipinos.
The Philippine Independence Day Ball will be held at the Marriott Hotel Vienna on 13 June 2015.
The Barrio Fiesta in Vienna is a free event open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend the fiesta on 25 July 2015 to participate in the festivities.
The Council of Filipino Associations in Austria shall provide pure Pinoy fun and entertainment by featuring the best of Filipino cultural performances. It aims to bring together and capture the unique qualities and spectacles of the Philippine’s fiesta. The Barrio Fiesta 2015 in Vienna will be held at the ATV Liesing Sportsplatz – Pellmanngasse 2, 1230 Vienna.
