2014 Calendar of Major Philippine Festivals

Home » Blog » Travel » Philippines » 2014 Calendar of Major Philippine Festivals

The Philippines celebrates religious and cultural festivities all year round. The table below shows the schedule of the major Philippine Festivals. While some have been posted with exact dates, others are just estimates. We will try to contact the organizers to get the actual dates of the events and will constantly update this page.

You can also help me in keeping this post updated. Let me know if you have any knowledge of the festival’s schedule and I will update this page.
