Escolta Street in Manila was once known as the Philippine capital’s Fifth Avenue. Like other parts of the city, only a few colonial buildings remain there today, so it has become an advocacy for some groups to preserve its structures and revive the once bustling area.

The latest event to champion this is the upcoming Pista ng Pamana (Heritage Feast), a week-long event that aims to celebrate Philippine heritage.

It’s organized by HUB Make Lab, a creative community and alt-retail incubation space based in Escolta, and will run from May 27, Monday to June 2, Sunday.

Each day will be focused on a certain medium including photography, art, design, film, literature, food, fashion, and music. There will be workshops, photo walks, history tours, film screenings, a fashion market, and even a concert and party.

Performers include local artists like Pedicab, Bloomfields, Bing Austria, Pasta Groove, Major Chie, Sgt. Vez, and Christian Nagaño – Kundiman Serenade.

The event is free and open to the public and most activities will be held in Escolta’s historic First United Building.
