Marikina Day and Ka-Angkan Festival, celebrated in April, honors the values of kinship, belongingness and solidarity of the city’s multi-clan populace. It also gives tribute to the city’s families who have made Marikina their place of home for a hundred years.


Coinciding with the city’s founding day on April 16, 1630, the festival’s main highlight is the parade of the clans, or old families, with members of each clan proudly proclaiming their “bansag” or special title through banners and costumes. Expect a fiesta-like atmosphere with colorful and creative banners, banderitas (the staple in every Filipino fiesta celebration) and a cacophony of sounds from drums and bugles to add more life to the festive mood.
