Pista ng Mapa (Festival of Maps) is the pioneer and premier free (as to cost and as in freedom) and open conference in the Philippines made for and by people who have a passion for open mapping, open data, and open source. It is an outreach activity to generate public interest, advocate and advance the use of open (geo) data, promote free and open source software for geospatial (FOSS4G), and support local open mapping communities around the Philippines.
Since the first Pista in 2019, it has brought together countless participants from different backgrounds to celebrate open source, open data, and open geospatial and have inspired new members to join, help, or start their own communities.
It is an event run wholly by volunteers and advocates from the local OpenStreetMap, OSGeo/FOSS4G, and other map-py communities. OpenStreetMap, OSGeo/FOSS4G, and other map-py communities.

There won't be a Pista ng Mapa without volunteers. Help organize the event, create publicity materials, handle the conference programme, get sponsorships, and share the Pista with friends. Everyone is welcome to volunteer—all that's required is the willingness to help.
The Pista is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with friends, meet new ones, and integrate with the open mapping community in the Philippines!
Sharing is the essence of Pista. With the valuable support of our sponsors and partners, we are able to organize a free and open conference that fosters the growth of local and inclusive communities for Filipino open data, open source, and open mapping advocates, enthusiasts, and professionals.
