FCN 2022 Update

With heavy hearts, the PSA FCN Coordinators are canceling our original outdoor event plan on Saturday for FCN due to the weather forecast and advising from Illini Union. Because of the chance for rain, it would be impractical and unsafe to hold FCN as we originally had planned, and we want to prioritize the safety and health of all volunteers, performers, and attendees.
 
However, we will instead be delivering the amazing Kamayan food prepared by FAAECI! The order form is in a link in our bio, and deliveries will be made within the Champaign-Urbana area during the original time of FCN 2022, from 6-9 pm. Please order food, as this is a rare opportunity to try amazing, home cooked Filipino food!
 
Lastly, we’d like to thank PSA Officer Board, our volunteers, our performers, the Maligaya Oriental Market, and the FAAECI community for their hard work and dedication in helping us put together this year’s FCN. While we are saddened by the fact that our FCN is not turning out as we envisioned, we are excited to still bring Filipino culture and awareness to the community, and we will make sure your hard work is not forgotten. Thank you all!
