Maytinis Festival - Cavite Events

Maytinis Festival

December 24| Kawit, Cavite


A well-loved Caviteño tradition, the Maytinis is a dramatic retelling of St. Joseph’s and Virgin Mary’s search in Bethlehem for a place to stay. They found not a room, of course, but a stable where Christ was eventually born. Much rejoicing erupts as the play ends, culminating in a lively parade down the street of Kawit. It is a uniquely Filipino translation of this ancient biblical episode.
