Filipino community information in Las Vegas

Reader Question:

I and my family have just moved to Las Vegas from the Philippines, and I am interested in finding out more about the Filipino community in this city, and where many Filipinos gather. Please send me information. Thanks.


Examiner Response:

Thank you for your email and welcome to Las Vegas! There is a fairly large population of Filipinos in Las Vegas, and you and your family will enjoy living here.

There is a Philippine Chamber of Commerce in Las Vegas, but you will find many resources and Filipino businesses located in the area around Maryland Parkway and Sahara. As always, you can find Pinoys where there is food, so I recommend the following to get you started:

  • Seafood City on Maryland Parkway near the Boulevard Mall (has a Red Ribbon, Chow King, and Jollibee)
  • Pinoy Pinay on the corner of Maryland Parkway and Sahara
  • Elena's Restaurant on the corner of Desert Inn and Eastern


There are also several Filipino businesses and restaurants on the corner of Charleston and Maryland Parkway.

As far as churches go, Our Lady of Las Vegas on Alta Drive near Valley View holds a Tagalog music Mass every Sunday at 6:30pm.

I also recommend the following website: FilipinoLasVegas.com.

Good luck on your search, and thank you for reading!

    You could also have them check meetup.com that's where I found some Filipinos when I was new in Seattle.

    Thanks, Emylou for the suggestion. Unfortunately, at this time there are no Filipino groups registered with meetup.com in Las Vegas. That's why I recommended FilipinoLasVegas.com, because it's where I found my sources. But meetup.com is a great resource for other cultural groups!

    hi Gwen! this is my first time at this website, and happy to have found you!!!... my son, LYSANDER O. ABADIA, will present his first theatre production and direction of "The Bible, The Complete Word of God (abridged)" on July 8-17, 2011 at The Las Vegas Little Theatre, 3920 Schiff Drive, 702-362-7996; for more detailed information, you may go to www.lvlt.org or www.poorrichard'splayers.com; i do ask for your support, and inform your readers and friends, especially our Kababayan, the Filipino Community, of his first theatre project; he's one of the young Filipino-born Americans trying to establish the Las Vegas theatre arts shows, and make a mark in this "land of opportunities", particularly here in our own Las Vegas Community!!... maraming salamat po!!!
