The Philippines will once again celebrate Fountain Pen Day this November 5 & 6 (Saturday and Sunday), 2016! It will be held at the 3rd floor atrium of SM Aura Premier in Taguig, opposite Toy Kingdom. Fountain Pen Day, founded by Cary Yeager in the US, is celebrated internationally on the first Friday of November – this time we are celebrating with a weekend of exciting sales and activities.
Major sponsors include Parker, Sheaffer, Lamy, Faber-Castell, Scribe Writing Essentials, Pengrafik and Everything Calligraphy. Each sponsor booth will have attractive promos, so if you’re looking for fine writing instruments, ink and stationery, do drop by! Other sponsors include Asia Brewery and PNB Savings Bank.
Fountain Pen Day-Philippines 2016 is organized by Fountain Pen Network-Philippines, which has a forum and a Facebook group page (with now over 3,000 members). This is the third year in a row that it has been promoting the use of fountain pens, and the love of handwriting and calligraphy, to everyone. Admission is open to the general public.
