About Us

Bay Area Filipino Meetup (BAFM) - we are a group of Filipinos and Filipino Americans living in the Bay Area, doing social and recreational group activities to connect with our roots and the community. Our group's purpose is to create a space for connection and meet up to:

• gather and be a part of the community while doing positive things together

• explore, share, and delve into our cultural heritage and history

• make friendships and connections

We all have something to learn from each other. So, atin ito :-).

Who We Are and What We Do

We are kapwa Filipinos/kapwa tao (fellow beings) who simply like to meet up to get together, share, learn, experience, and meet new friends. We are adults coming from various backgrounds and enjoy meeting people in the community.

We plan activities on a monthly basis that is culturally-related and some other activities to keep a variety, such as attend cultural events, festivals, go to the movies, picnics, potlucks, karaoke, eat out, walk/hike, fun and games, book discussion, and any indoor and outdoor activities.
