Origin Fair is a pop-up weekend fair held at Burgos Park, Forbes Town Road, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig on two weekends every month for local entrepreneurs to showcase their businesses. It is created to promote local talent, and to support and patronize handcrafted items from fresh produce, plants, baked goods, artisanal products, and unique clothing.
To welcome the first of summer, the fair will conduct its first leg on the second and third weekends of March – March 17 & 18 and March 24 & 25. People will get to experience activities both for kids and kids at heart – from different workshops, music jams, and fun-filled activities.
Organized by cousins Gianelle and Carmela Maniego, Origin was created to remind each and everyone that you will always come back to your roots. “No matter how busy your work week was, you will always find comfort at home with your families,” Gianelle said. “Origin Fair is all about bonding with families, and friends turned into families and simply having a stress free weekend,” Carmela added.
“Our main objectives are to provide an avenue for local vendors to meet, work together, and have a healthy competition at the same time catering to the demands of people from different age groups and backgrounds,” Carmela said.
“Our merchants were carefully screened and picked to give everyone not just a typical bazaar but a fair to remember. It will be an event that will offer a fun and welcoming atmosphere where everyone can gather, enjoy and appreciate Filipino talent,” Gianelle explained.
The event will start at 11 am and will last until 8 pm.
