The Arizona Filipino Community is a public service information site for Filipinos in the state of Arizona. TheFilipino.com has a 27-year tenure in Arizona and has the experience. We're not here to sell you a house or sell you a loan or refinancing but to give you information about Filipinos in Arizona.  TheFilipino.com has made its rounds around Arizona to meet other Filipinos in Arizona. From Yuma to Sierra Vista and all the way down to Benson. Yes, there are Filipinos there too.

Here's a brief overview of Filipinos in Arizona.

There is an estimated population of 33,000 (officially, nearing 40,000 unofficially) Filipinos in Arizona. Majority of the Filipinos in Arizona live in the Greater Metro Phoenix area - Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Avondale, Goodyear, Surprise, and Scottsdale. There are also Filipinos in Casa Grande, Flagstaff, Coolidge, Prescott, Douglas, Sierra Vista, Benson, Yuma, Tucson and Bullhead City, Lake Havasu, area.

Filipinos migrated to Arizona through either jobs (medical, military, software programming), family members or Filipinos who just wanted to have a change in weather from the cold east coast or a break from the hustle and bustle of California.

There is also a small group of Filipino Mexicans who are the descendants of the Filipino migrant workers back in the 30s and 40s, as well. Recently, there has been a group of Filipino teachers from the Philippines that have been introduced in the Arizona Educational System. Most of the Filipino teachers are assigned to the outlying areas. Some of the major hotels in the valley have also hired seasonal Filipino workers to work for their demand in the winter, as well.

Filipinos in Arizona celebrate a major event each year and that is the Independence Day Celebration which is held at ASU West every June of each year. Each of the organizations also have their own respective gatherings through the year like Easter, Simbang Gabi, annual parties, award ceremonies, induction ceremonies, fund-raising activities, and special occassions or visits by Philippine dignitaries.

There's three or four stores (click here for Filipino store listings) and several restaurants (click here for Filipino restaurant listings) that cater to the Filipino community in Arizona. Most of the stores do have a in-house restaurant. There are two local Filipino newspapers. Contact us for advertising details.

Several churches are attended by Filipinos in Arizona. Our Lady of the Valley is home to Filipinos (www.fccaz.com) living in the Metro Phoenix area. There is also St Thomas Aquinas in the Avondale-Litchfield area, Sts. Simon and Jude, and many more. There are also several prayer groups like BLD, Amor Dei, etc., and Christian, Iglesia ni Kristo, and Baptist groups, as well.

A Filipino Basketball league is held at the Washington High School Gym during the summer and winter. There are two golf associations who also hold a combined tournament annually. There used to be a tennis group that met at Rose Mofford park on Sundays but we're unable to verify that it is still in effect.

Each of the Arizona universities have Filipino Student Associations.

We welcome you to Arizona and hope you enjoy the heat in the summer and love our winters :-) Maraming Salamat Po!
