Cultural celebrations abound in Pasig City, suffused with color and revelry. Visit the city at any time of the year for a culturally enriching and spiritually edifying experience, participating in any one of the following festivals:

BAMBINO FESTIVAL

This festival is celebrated in honor of the Sto. Nino, whose innocence, purity of spirit, and love have had a profound influence on the lives of Pasiguenos. An exhibit featuring the various images of the Blessed Child is mounted, culminating in a procession participated in by the different parishes and schools in the city.

ITIK-ITIK FESTIVAL

Held on the last Sunday of February that is the Feast of Barangay Kalawaan’s beloved patroness, St. Martha, this event highlights the barangay’s yield, the Itik ( a species of duck), hence the name of the festival

ARAW NG PASIG

The most anticipated celebration of the year, Araw ng Pasig pays homage to the original patroness of Pasig, and its establishment as a parish in 1573. A motley of pop-cultural events occur simultaneously during the month-long affair, such as the Mutya ng Pasig pageant, the Outstanding Pasigueno Awards, and the street dance competition. The festivities culminate on July 2 that is, itself, the Feast of the Visitation of Our Lady.

BAYANIHAN FESTIVAL

The Bayanihan Festival depicts one of the Filipinos’ most extolled virtues: bayanihan (unity and cooperation). On the eve of Barangay Ugong’s fiesta that is held on the Sunday before the Feast of Christ the King in November, each purok or zone participates in a race of bahay-kubo (nipa hut). A muse sits atop each bahay-kubo, and cheers the crew on. The race commences at the barangay hall, stops at five strategically positioned stations to accomplish a challenge, and returns to the barangay hall for the finish.

PISTA NG PASIG

This is a church-sponsored celebration in honor of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8. The Parish Pastoral Council organizes events such as Marian concerts and novenario processions which draw an enormous following, as the Immaculate Conception Cathedral was the first Marian parish in the Philippines.

PASKOTITAP

The first ever grand Christmas float parade, Paskotitap features a number of themed floats, all marvelously designed and crafted by some of the country’s most acclaimed artists. Each float is accompanied by a group of dancers in accoutrements consistent with the float’s theme. This event is a definite treat to children and adults alike, who behold the entire spectacle through the dance competition that features choreographed performances by the participating dance groups.

PAKALOG FESTIVAL

Celebrated every 31st of December in Barangay Santolan, Pasig City. Pakalog Festival is one way of welcoming the upcoming year wherein people from the barangay (Santolenos) gathered on the streets and celebrate the new year with sharing foods, party games and loud music. The parade was held in four-o-clock in the afternoon and all residents have seen Santolenos band followed by different groups of social communities and the most awaited ‘lechon’ carried by people.
