Coffee, balloons, and the return of an early 2000’s icon: Events in March 2020.
How is 2020 going so fast? Two months down and it feels like a lot has already happened! Of course, that won’t stop these must-see events from happening:.
Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta
March 6 – 8
It started as nothing more than a passion project after the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption. This year, the annual Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, dubbed as the “Weekend of Everything That Almost Flies” is headed South, instead of the usual North. Drive to the San Lorenzo Leisure in Carmona, Cavite on March 6-8, 2020 for the longest-running sports aviation event in Asia. See air shows and races from top aviation companies in the Philippines, first-person-view (FPV) drone races, and much more!

Manila Coffee Festival
March 13 – 15
Celebrate all things coffee—from bean to cup—at the 2nd Manila Coffee Festival, happening from March 13-15, 2020 at Manila Hotel’s Tent City. The Manila counterpart to similar festivals in New York, London, and, more recently, Amsterdam. See how things like food, art, music, local tourism, and entertainment can come together under one roof to talk about one thing—coffee!

Art in the Park 2020
Exploring your love for art doesn’t end just because National Arts Month (i.e. February) is over. The same folks who bring you the largest art fair in the country year in and year out, Art Fair Philippines, will once again hold the annual Art in the Park, happening on March 15, 2020 at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Makati City. Swing by and see your next art inspo, or just enjoy being at this quiet Salcedo Park with other people who love art as much as you do.
