THE ILOILO Dinagyang Festival will perform in the USA on June 2 and 8.

In a statement from the City Hall press office, the 23-man Dinagyang dancers will perform during the Philippine Independence Day Parade in Madison Avenue Manhattan, New York City on June 2.

On June 8, they will perform at the Filipinotown of Los Angeles, California.

The twin performances are part of the 115th Philippine Independence Day celebrations in the US.

The Dinagyang contingent will banner the Department of Tourism’s (DOT) taglines “It’s more fun in the Philippines” and “It’s fun to be Pinoy!”

The DOT’s Tourism and Promotions Board will sponsor the US trip.

This is the second time Dinagyang will be showcased in the NYC parade touted as the largest celebration of its kind. The first time that the contingent performed was in 2011 with 100,000 spectators getting a taste of the country’s 3-time best tourism event.
