Filipino Calendar for Public & Special Holiday, Long Weekends

The Philippines citiesmunicipalities, or barangays, often observe one or more holidays. Being a predominantly Catholic country, these are usually the feasts of the locale's one or more patron saints.Secular observances usually mark a government's founding day or the birth or death of a prominent native. These are often celebrated with paradesprocessions, entertainment, and feasting, as well as whatever local customs, are traditional.


Local holidays, for the most part, are applicable only to the immediate area concerned, and barangay fiestas do not usually warrant a public holiday for the area unless otherwise ordered. Such holidays are usually declared as special non-working days and are proclaimed by the President.


NOTE: All Holiday dates noted below were correct at time of publication but can be changed  or additional Holidays added as per the Philippines Government as at 2018
