Asian Festival of Children’s Content
23–26 May 2024

More than just a party, the COF Philippines Night commemorates 55 years of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Singapore. It showcases the diverse literary and cultural landscape of the Philippines, as told through its narratives woven into Filipino folklore, dance, music and the people. 

Co-organised with the National Book Development Board (NBDB), the COF Philippines Night will also feature highlights of NBDB's many programmes and initiatives including BookNook, the Philippine Book Festival and its upcoming participation as Country Guest of Honour in the Frankfurt Buchmesse in 2025.

Join us as we celebrate this partnership with a special evening of performances and the launch of translated children's books.
