FESTIVALS AND EVENTS

Mano Po San Roque Festival (12th of May)
A streetdancing and procession along the city's thoroughfares in commemoration of the Feast of San Roque highlighting the customs and traditional celebration of the festival.
Called "Sayawan sa Calle" Festival, the festival which is centered in the Church, dates back from the mid-1700s when people in the area danced publicly to show their joy over the departure of the English soldiers who occupied the area for a few days during the Spanish-English war. The practice of street dancing has since become a tradition that took on the form of spiritual thanksgiving every 12th of May.

Feast of San Diego de Alcala (12th of November)
Poblacion I
Celebration of the feast of the oldest church in Valenzuela City, which includes annual boat racing, streetdancing and different activities of the festival.
