This is a partial list of festivals in the Philippines, known as "fiestas". The origin of most
early fiestas are rooted in Christianity, dating back to the Spanish colonial period when the many
communities (such as barrios and towns) of the predominantly CatholicPhilippines almost always
had a patron saint assigned to each of them. Originally encouraged by the Spanish to coincide with
Christian holy days, early festivals became vital instruments in spreading Christianity throughout the
country.[1][2][3][4]
Fiestas in the Philippines can be religious, cultural, or both. Several of these are held to honor the
local Roman Catholic patron saint, to commemorate local history and culture, to promote the
community's products, or to celebrate a bountiful harvest. They can be marked by Holy

Masses, processions, parades, theatrical play and reenactments, religious or cultural rituals, trade
fairs, exhibits,concerts, pageants and various games and contests.
Some festivals, such as Holy Week and Christmas, are declared as public holidays, and thus, are
observed and celebrated nationwide.
