Santacruzan is held on : May 15 at Pampanga, Philippines
In the Philippines, the month of May, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, is the season of colorful festivals. Considered the Queen of Filipino Festivals or the Queen of May Festivities, the most colorful is the Santacruzan (Festival of the Holy Cross), a commemoration of the finding of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem by Saint Helena, mother of Constantine the Great. This Filipino tradition, introduced by the Spanish conquerors, is more than 100 years old and lives on even in Europe and America. Filipino communities and associations all over the world celebrate the Santacruzan with the same pageantry and glamor as the townsfolk in their homeland.
