The Lucban San Isidro Pahiyas Festival, the Philippines’ most colorful harvest festival will be once again celebrated on May 15, 2024, a Wednesday. As the country is easing restrictions on Covid 19, a more lively and grand festival is expected after 2 years of hiatus.
We celebrate the Pahiyas to thank God for the bountiful harvest and honor the patron saint of farmers, San Isidro de Labrador. Let us also be thankful for our good health and the blessings that we received for our family in this time of crisis.

Countdown to Pahiyas Festival 2024
May 15, 2024, Wednesday
The Pahiyas Procession Map changes every year to give every Lucban household a chance to participate and decorate their houses and win cash and other prizes. Because of the religious significance of the procession, it is the Roman Catholic church who is tasked in planning the route for the next year’s Pahiyas celebration. Consultation with the Lucban Municipal Government is made with regards to vehicular traffic and other road concerns for the smooth flow of man and vehicles during the festival.
