Ka-Angkan Festival 2009

Since 1999, the Ka-Angkan Festival (Festival of Clans) is an annual celebration in Marikina City.  The event is celebrated every April, coinciding with the city's Founding Anniversary Week.  The festival pays tribute to Marikina city residents whose clans and ancestors all lived in Marikina for several generations.   The annual tradition serves as the focal point of Marikina's 379th Founding Anniversary Celebration.  

Names such as the Nepomucenos and the Fernandos have long lived in Marikina and have sprouted a long list of relatives spanning generations.

This year's Ka-Angkan is from April 13 to 18, 2009.  On the last day from 2:00pm to 7:00pm, part of Sumulong Highway and Bonifacio Ave. will be closed to traffic for the festival parade.

Experience the celebration of the Angkans here in Marikina !
