Pahiyas is one of the most awesome fiestas in the country. It falls on the feast day of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers to show gratitude for a good and abundant harvest. It is celebrated in Lucban (most popular and commercialized), Sariaya, Tayabas and other towns in Quezon.
The Pahiyas Festival is always observed on a fixed date — May 15 — and this year, it’s a Sunday. It will take another 5 years (on May 15, 2016, to be exact) before it is celebrated on a weekend again.
