Multiply the joys of the season by gifting yourself and your loved ones with special finds lovingly made by our local entrepreneurs. Complete your holiday shopping list at our Christmas Grand Fest and share your blessings many times over, not just within your social circle, but also with the families of the participating entrepreneurs and their employees from all over the regions.

Among the hardest hit by the global COVID-19 pandemic are our micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) who are the backbone of our local economy. When you buy your gifts from our MSMEs, you are not just giving a gift to a loved one, you are also giving the gift of livelihood and employment to our countrymen.

The Christmas Grand Fest is the culmination of the Bagsakan Project organized by the Department of Trade and Industry – Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion (DTI-BDTP) in collaboration with the DTI Regional and Provincial Offices. Fifty-seven exhibitors from 12 provinces as well as the National Capital Region are showcasing their wares at the event.

Featured products are food and other regional delicacies, garments, footwear, home decor, as well as gift items. Participating exhibitors are from the National Capital Region, and the provinces of Ilocos Sur, Isabela, Bataan, Nueva Ecija, Batangas, Laguna, Quezon, Sorsogon, Guimaras, Samar, Zamboanga, and Davao.

Visit the Christmas Grand Fest from 16-20 December, at the Civic Drive Hallway of Festival Mall in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
