Alviera offers a one-of-a-kind Christmas adventure for the whole family with the Christmas Jamboree on November 28 and 29 at Porac, Pampanga. It is a unique Yuletide celebration where you get to camp out under the stars and enjoy day-long arts and crafts workshops, live performances and holiday games.

During this weekend, SandBox transforms into a Christmas wonderland with festive workshop tents, life-sized Christmas displays and numerous parols or Pinoy Christmas lanterns lighting up the campsite. Alviera’s majestic 360-degree view of scenic hills and mountains enhance the fantasy setting.

“Alviera is here not just to merely create an economic hub, we are also making sure that the natural beauty of Porac is preserved and highlighted. Our role as a developer is to simply enhance God’s gift to us and the best way for people to appreciate this would be to bring them closer to nature through camping.  The Alviera Christmas Jamboree gives you a glimpse of what to expect in Alviera in the future. Even at full development there will be open spaces for everyone to enjoy. More importantly, we want to provide opportunities where families can create moments they can share together.” – John Estacio, Alviera General Manager.

Alviera is Ayala Land’s first masterplanned estate in the north, in partnership with Leonio Land. A 1,100 hectare development, it is inspired by a philosophy of harmonious balance between urban living and nature.
