Makati City Festivals

Makati City is among most advanced and high-class cities in the Philippines with towering skyscrapers, financial institutions, chic malls, and the latest in a stylish lifestyle. Yet, the city also religiously observes colorful traditional Makati festivals annually which have been handed down from generation to generation.

Bailes Delos Arcos
“Dancers of the Arch” in English, Bailes elos Arcos is one of the exciting Makati festivals bequeathed by an elderly generation to a younger generation. The festival involves the participation of young ladies who train for a year mastering peculiar dance steps to be performed on the festival day, June 29. They offer the dance in a kind of pledged devotion to their patron saints, St. Peter, St. Paul, and Virgen Dela Rosa. When the participants get old they assign the tradition to their young daughters. So the festival goes on annually perpetrated by family lines. The event is held in Barangay Poblacion.

The Xong Di Festival
Probably the most colorful and educational of Makati festivals, the event is highlighted by colorful displays of costumes, trinkets, accessories, and the like, of 17 different ethnic tribes of China. The idea is to juxtapose them with Filipino costumes and accessories to prove the similarities between the two Asian cultures. The Chinese words, “Xong di” really means “brother.”

Belen sa Makati
Christmas is celebrated widely in the Philippines but what makes “Belen sa Makati” different is that this festival showcases different versions of the Nativity displayed outside buildings, barangay halls, the Makati City Hall, schools, malls, and offices. The entire length of Ayala Avenue comes very vibrant with huge Yuletide lanterns and blinking Christmas lights to emphasize the event. Makati festivals are often decorated with lights, and this event is known as a city-wide festival of Nativity lanterns. The event often starts in early November of each year and ends on the first week of January.
