The venue has been built to commemorate the declaration of Philippine Independence on June 12, 1898. It was inaugurated on the 100th anniversary of the occasion. The 60-hectare entertainment park is located in Clark Freeport Zone of Angeles City. It symbolizes the history, culture and achievements of the Philippines in the past century. Clark Expo was a combined project of the National Centennial Commission (NCC) and the Philippine Centennial Exposition Corporation.

The venue has the capacity to host 35,000 people at any given time. It is a favorite place for concerts and large scale events.

Closure and Reopening
Expo Pilipino was closed in 1999 for sustaining losses. After the gap of five years, it was reopened as Clark Expo Amphitheater. The new theme park featured world-class furniture exhibits and carnival rides. The reopening of the venue was realized due to the active support of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
