International Bamboo Festival

Las Piñas City, Metro Manila
February 17-23

St. Joseph Parish Church is home to the world-famous Las Piñas Bamboo Organ, which was built in the 19th century. Only the horizontal trumpet stops of the organ are not made of bamboo. The instrument’s unique sound takes center stage. The feast is also a tribute to the community spirit that has preserved the organ.
