Global Fest 2007 is one event in Calgary that shouldn’t be missed. With Calgary’s growing population and multi-cultural communities, this event gives everyone the opportunity to sample a bit of every culture involved in the Festival.

Being’s first Global Festival, The Philippine Pavillion and food stands did a great job promoting a taste of Philippine culture; promoting various clothing, souvenirs, games, and of course food!

In the cultural food tents, two local Filipino businesses shared a space together promoting Filipino food and products; Pinoy Sari Sari and Calgary’s newest Filipino Restaurant, Goto Haven! Goto Heaven’s Ronnie & Elvie Cayanan (seen on left) kindly gave us a delicious sample of their special authentic Filipino dish, Goto. If you’re looking for heavenly Goto, visit Goto Haven! Goto Haven is located at the 36st and 17 Ave intersection in the North East (403) 454-4686.

Thank you to all the Filipino businesses, entertainment and volunteers promoting the Filipino community in Calgary; you are appreciated!
