About Us




The Philippine-American Association of East Tennessee (PAAET) has been in existence since 1984.

We started as a small group, have grown to several hundred and are still growing. PAAET was created to promote closer relationships and understanding among Filipino-American families in East Tennessee; and to participate in local activities that will enhance better understanding of Filipino culture and traditions.

Our community is diverse, including all of Filipino heritage ,university students, friends of the Philippines and adoptive families. We meet several times a year for parties and picnics.

We encourage you to get involved with PAAET, so that we may continue as an organization where one can always find his or her culture and traditions are still alive. Please request to join our group.
