Tanglawan Festival
(Held during September 1-9)
San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan


From the word "ilaw" or light, the Tanglawan Festival symbolizes the light that will guide the San Joseños to a more sustainable city. The Festival aims to promote San Jose Del Monte as "The Rising City" with the potential of becoming the premiere city of Bulacan. Tanglawan Festival boasted not only the city's colorful culture and tradition, but also the exceptional traits of its locals. Said festival was offered to St. Joseph the Worker, the light who guides the San Joseños.

Tanglawan was inspired by the tale of the origins of San Jose del Monte that tells of a lumberjack who got lost in the woods. After praying solemnly, a divine light; a glowing statue of St. Joseph led him out of the forest. Apart from this, Tanglawan was inspired by the city's contemporary history that shines bright with the light of progress through the grace of God.

Moreover, it is the goal of the festival to gather San Joseños, who came from different cultural backgrounds and to break barriers through the festival's spirit of fellowship in order to make the City of San Jose del Monte a more harmonious and vibrant community to live in.
