The Philippines is known to have a long list of festivals. With these, it is a fact that the Filipinos enjoy the celebration and having to get together. Philippine festivals are very vast and all depict the culture and tradition of each of the places. Some festivity takes place within a day or a week, but some last an entire month. A lot of tourists have been attracted to these celebrations as it gives a colorful and energetic environment.

Philippines’ celebration of the fiesta is mostly religious in nature as this was because of the influence of the Spanish colonization. However, some festivity is a celebration to depict a significant event in the place’s history or to give thanks for an abundant harvest.

Starting at the beginning of the year, the first famous religious festivity that is taking place is the Black Nazarene Procession of Quiapo (every 9th of January). Thousands of devotees are taking part in the celebration by joining the largest procession in the country which is usually called as the “translacion” or the transferring of the Black Nazarene from Intramuros to the Quiapo church.

The next one is the Ati-atihan Festivity of Kalibo, Aklan (3rd week of January). The focus of the celebration is Sto. Niño. The street parade is characterized by the participants’ face painting and tribal dances with indigenous weapons and costumes. The Sinulog Festival of Cebu City also takes place in the 3rd week of January as Sto. Niño is also the focus of it. Sinulog is said to be the most visited fiestas in the country, not only by the Filipinos but also by foreigners. Still honoring Sto Niño, the Dinagyang Festival of Iloilo City takes place in the 4th week of January. At this festival, one can witness a big party on the streets – with bands and overflowing foods and drinks.

Meanwhile, in February, there is the Panagbenga of Baguio City. The parade of this celebration is very charming due to its floral floats and people dressed as flora and fauna.

In the province of Quezon, particularly in Lucban, the very colorful Pahiyas is celebrated every 15th of May. Vegetables from the “Bahay Kubo” song can be widely seen in the house’s decorations and visitors can just pick them for free. Also in the month of May, childless women come to Obando, Bulacan to dance on the street to honor and request the patron saints of the city to let them have a child. In the 3rd week of August, there is the Kadayawan celebration of Davao City. It is the biggest festival on the island and is characterized by flowers and fruits. Additionally, Bacolod City’s MassKara happens every October and every visitor will be overwhelmed by the sweet smiles and colorful masks in the street dancing competition.

On the other hand, there is also a fiesta that is unique and not very festive, this is the Moriones Festival of Marinduque and is taking place every Holy Week. It is a re-enactment of the story of St. Longinus and Jesus Christ. Participants of the event wear big wooden soldier masks and Roman soldiers’ costumes.

    Celebrating Festivals is the way to show the different patron saint or most known products in each provinces. For me Philippines shall promote these festivals to other country because it shows that the Filipinos work as a diverse team. Because festivals are done by different people with different race, age, gender, religion, and color. And it only shows that a diverse nation can stand out as a team through festivals because it is a product of brainstorming. Promoting these festivals will give other countries an ideas that people will stand out if they are working together and make them realize how important teamwork is.

    In my opinion, the Philippines should promote their festivals to other countries in order to demonstrate the various cultures and how the Philippines celebrates each tradition. It will also show the world that, despite our differences and traditional values, we can still unite. It is also intended to show to the other country the origins of being a Filipino or their cultural identity. Promoting festivals in the Philippines to make it easier to introduce the essence of being a Filipino to other countries. That Filipinos can come together despite their differences in beliefs. Festivals are also one of the reasons why tourists visit the Philippines. It piques the interest of others who want to learn more about the richness of Filipino culture. Because it attracts people from various countries.

    A country possess a diversity of culture. Even at the very pick of each regions or cities of the Philippines, it depicts variety of histories, amazing delicacies, it’s unique and various customs and practices that can be seen through our festival that we are celebrating. Native ancestors of the past, their experiences, struggles, even battles to survive and their victorious endings only can be more specified and narrate in each story telling dances of each places unique festivals. Various festivals of the Philippines also incorporate on introducing us to the world and so it is a must that we should be proud promoting our festivals in different parts of the globe. Telling our festivals is like telling our history full of meaningful triumphs of the past and so we should embrace our colorful festival, spread its positive impact and show the world how colorful our county is.

  8. Jolina S. Toledo 3-R1

    Moriones Festival

    During Holy Week each year, a biblical re-enactment is seen on the roads of Marinduque. What makes the moriones festival unique is that they tell a story in a very experiencing way. The “Moriones” these are men and women in costumes and masks replicating the garb of biblical Imperial and Royal Roman soldiers as interpreted by locals. Performed as a form of penitence, Moriones Festival is meant to portray the search for Longinus, the Roman soldier who pierced Jesus’ side with a lance during the Crucifixion. Christian or not, this religious pageantry is interesting to say the least.

    The festival is also interesting because it starts at April 02 to 12 with mass and other religious activities filling the schedule, throughout the festival, the Morions not only parade their bizarre outfits and eye-catching centurion masks, but they also engage with the crowd through a dance routine, sword fights, and even pranks and surprises. But apart from the fun, the Morions also observe this week to atone for their sins.

    That the food served to those who take part in the religious procession is all fish and seafood should come as no surprise. Being an island province, Marinduque is surrounded by waters and is therefore abundant in marine life.

Also through dancing we forget our problems, suffering, sad emotion, and the takes away the pain that’s why we must promote our festival to other country for the benefits of all.

    Before I go any further, I’d like to express my pride in being a Filipino citizen, having been born and reared in the Philippines by both of my parents. As a native of this nation, I can attest to the fact that the Philippines has much to offer any tourist who visits. Every town in the country has its own festival that is held every year; it is not only held for fun, but it also signifies a remarkable event from the past that should be remembered. Every festival truly represents the culture and heritage of the town. The majority of the festivals are commemorated through street dance, in which locals of that town hold a competition between groups of dancers who perform in a competition with a specific theme. It has a Workplace diversity is about recognizing, valuing and leveraging people’s differences to enhance communication and team effectiveness. Its really need a teamwork to give thier skills to work together and achieve a common goal. Beacuse you are a diverse group of individuals that need support each other to showcase your talents and ability in performing. All they have to do is perform their dance in order for the audience to know the value of that festive event. Indeed, the diversity of the local inhabitants in that town is reflected in the numerous festivals that we celebrate. The Philippines’ Department of Tourism must promote the numerous festivities that our country has to offer. Not only to make them renowned, but also to appreciate the beauty of the local cities in general, as well as to showcase the wonderful community and local goodies available to visitors. Making vlogs or videos on what festivals the Philippines has to offer and putting them online will arouse people’s interest, and they will want to go celebrate the festival of their choice. It’s one of the most effective ways to promote something these days, and it works.

  16. Christine Jane H. Prado BSIT RAC 3-R1

    Answer:
    As the Philippines is one of the most popular country in terms of celebrating festivals every year. The diversity of people is such a hospitable manner especially in foreigners who likes to visit our country. And one of the reasons why Philippines shall promote these festivals to other countries is to show in the world that the culture of tye Philippines has a great impact to the people where they give importance and value their lives as together. Other reasons are some countries does not have festivals so that foreigners are excited to visit the Philippines because of the the colorful and beautiful fiesta in our country. As the Philippines having so much festivals, the filipino culture is giving abundance to our lives so that other fiesta represents as thanks giving for the bountiful life of the people as long as we respect others and valuing each life as we faced every problems in our daily lives.

  17. We should promote our festivals in other countries for exposing our festivals who represent our traditions culture in our country. We need to show them what we have and Filipinos can compete other countries. And also festivals having a big space in our life as a Filipino citizen. Because this is one of our expressing ways especially in our culture and religion.

    The MassKara Festival may be traced back to the 1980s, when it sprang from a problem. It was at a time when the province’s primary source of income, sugar, was at an all-time low due to new market alternatives.

  20. Ronel D. Alquiza BSIT 3-R1

    The Philippines should promote its festivals to other countries primarily because it is one of the way to let other nations know how we live and what we believed. By doing so, this action will surely open new opportunities in business and tourism to gain more investments and profits. And most of all, promoting our festivals is sharing our culture to others in this way we will be able to establish better understanding and good relationship. Showing our true colors to other nationality is the best way to gain their trust and to build friendship which will be a way also for us to learn from them. Basically, when we are sharing our own to others for sure they will do the same for us ,and this will help us to be more diverse and acquire more ideas for the betterment of individual as well as the country.

  21. Gebryl R. Carreon BSIT 3 M1

    We should promote Philippines to other countries for them to better understand our culture as a Filipino and how colorful our festival is that we should be proud of. To show the differences of all the festivals in the Philippines how it being celebrated and performed traditionally. Moreover, through each other’s diversity we became more aware of our own culture and traditions. And as a Filipino we should encourage and engage ourselves to better preserved and promote the culture and traditions that we had towards other countries to be well known.
