BAFM - Bay Area Filipino Meetup

A meetup group of Filipino Americans and kapwa Pilipino living in the Bay Area, doing social and recreational group activities for fun, cultural exploration and friendship. Purpose is to create a space for connection and fellowship.

Who We Are and What We Do

We are 'kapwatids' (wordplay for kapatid) who simply like to meet up, to get together and meet other kapwatids of the community. We are adults coming from various backgrounds. We like to learn, share, experience, and meet new friends.

We plan for cultural and other monthly activities, such as going to festivals, movie screenings, picnics, potlucks, karaoke, eat out, walk, hike, fun and games, book discussion, and any indoor and outdoor activities.

Rule of Thumb

We encourage our kapwa members and their guests to participate with respect, kindness, and a friendly attitude. Please note that membership is maintained based on participation and being active in the group.


We look forward to have you come to our meetups. Tuloy po at magkita-kita tayo. Salamat!

No soliciting please.

We're 330 Kapwatids

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
