Bonifacio Global City, my favorite stomping ground, is throwing its annual party on November 28, 29, and 30. The BGC PassionFest will feature food, culture, art, fitness, and fun with activities based on this year’s theme “BONI-fide Urban Fiesta”.
The festivities kick off with a Street Party on the evening of November 28 with colorful Filipino dances and a night parade. This also signals the start of the Supremo Sale with big discounts at participating stores in BGC — from Serendra to Bonifacio High Street, High Street Central, all the way to the Mind Museum.
On Saturday the 29th, Run BGC will be held as an Urban Adventure Race. Participants will explore BGC and its key features, tackling obstacles and challenges for mind and body along the way. More details on Run BGC below.
Boni-Fiesta from November 29 to 30 at Bonifacio High Street will feature favorite Filipino street food, local childhood games, art and musical performances, a Filipino science show by the Mind Museum, and more.
On Sunday, November 30, the Parada de Kalesa will showcase big bands, street dancers, and kalesas (horse-drawn carriages) decked out according to the theme of Filipino folklore and heroes; these kalesas will be available throughout the day for rides around BGC.
The party culminates with Bonifa-SHOW, a variety show featuring the best of Philippine entertainment on one stage.
Here’s more about Run BGC…
This year’s Run BGC is a team competition involving mind-boggling puzzles, exciting challenges, and amazing prizes. It’s set to be the largest scavenger hunt in the country. Participants will be released in batches of 10 people per team, given 10 clues and 10 tasks to be figured out and completed within three hours. Participants will perform tasks that promote different activities and features within BGC.
Registration opens on October 24 (today!) and ends on November 28 or until all slots are taken. Registration forms and run schedules are available on BGC.com.ph.

This is a great way to explore Bonifacio Global City and experience it in a different way. Put your group brains and dynamic to the test :) Although it’s not the normal fun run format, it’s still an enjoyable way to spend the day with friends, family, or co-workers.
