Being one of the university's most diverse melting pot of cultures, housing over five hundred residents from provinces all over the country, Kalayaan Residence Hall is proud to present its annual tourism, culture, and history festival: PasaFest 2017.
Pasalubong Festival, or Pasafest as fondly referred to by the UP Diliman community, is a popular and anticipated event attended to by thousands of visitors yearly to take a look at the dormitory residents' collective and individual cultural through booths, cultural performances, and free food. Aimed to show the significance of socio-cultural awareness, PasaFest binds Filipinos despite different cultures and beliefs through immersion and experience.
"Iba't-ibang sinag, iisang araw": this year's theme focuses on unity through and despite diversity. By seeking to produce well-rounded students equipped with knowledge on the importance of innovation, creativity, social awareness, and cooperation, PasaFest 2017 wants to show, not only the university but especially the entire country, that wherever we are from and whoever we may be, we are one: our days are illuminated by one, bright, Filipino sun.
