Festival Alabang (also known as Festival Mall, formerly known as Festival Supermall, and colloquially known as Festi), is a shopping mall owned and operated by Filinvest Land, Inc. It is located at Filinvest City (formerly Filinvest Corporate City) in Alabang, Muntinlupa, the Philippines. It opened on May 15, 1998.[3][1] The mall has a gross floor area of 400,000 square meters (4,300,000 sq ft),[2] gross leasable area of 170,000 square meters (1,800,000 sq ft),[4] and is the fifth largest mall in the Philippines.

In the first quarter of 2014, the mall completed the initial phase of its upgrading and rebranding efforts that began in 2013. Called the River Park, the initial phase of Festival Supermall's grand expansion is part of the mall's four-level expansion to keep up with the current growth in the country's retail industry.[5]

The East Wing (formerly the Expansion Wing), as well as the Water Garden, opened in 2017. The Landmark Alabang opened on July 28, 2017 initially with its supermarket and food center,[6] followed by its department store on October 6, 2017.[7] The Gold Class Cinemas (2 cinemas) opened on July 25, 2018, on the Third Floor of the East Wing, with each gold class theater having a 186-seating capacity.[8]

The mall features two indoor amusement parks,[4] X-Site and Pixie Forest, as well as in-mall amusement rides such as Festival Grand Carousel, The Festival Grand Station, and Kiddo Driving School. It also features 8 cinemas (6 in the Main Mall and 2 in the East Wing)[9][8] and 7 anchor stores such as Robinsons Department Store, Handyman, Ace Hardware, Savemore Market, Shopwise, Automatic Centre and Landmark.[10]

An Art Deco building of Department of Health's Biological Production Service (BPS) research unit,[11] built in 1924, was restored and incorporated into the mall in 2009,[12] adjacent to the ruins is a replica statue of José Rizal's The Triumph of Science over Death clay sculpture, sculpted by Genaro Sy-Changco.[13]

A Marian chapel[14] at the top of the River Park's hill gardens was formally unveiled to the public in October 2022.[15] Designed by Tokyo-based architect Hiroshi Nakamura in collaboration with NAP Architects,[16] Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel resembles an inverted white lily as an homage to the Virgin Mary,[16][17] topped by a 98-foot-high (30 m) central spire and can accommodate 300 seats.[17] Its ceiling and roof were shaped like segmented petals decorated with stained glass windows designed by British artist Helen Whittaker,[16][17] who also installed the David Hockney-designed Queen Elizabeth II Window at Westminster Abbey.[18][19] The life-sized altar centerpiece was created by Filipino sculptor Daniel Dela Cruz.[20][16] It holds Mass every Saturdays and Sundays and is open to the public daily during mall hours.[21]
