Pintados Festival
Celebrated every June 29 in Tacloban City, it is a dance festival of painted dancers celebrating important events such as the exploits of war as well as nature worship in narrative dance movements depicting their own folk practices and beliefs. The custom of tattooing earned for the Leyteños the name of Pintados. From ancient history, Roman conquests mentioned tattooed people in Briton, Saitas, Oriental Tartar, and other parts of the world.

Buyogan Festival
Adjudged as one of the ten best festivals of the Philippines, Buyogan’s artistic choreography and realistic costumes focus on the appearance and movement of the honeybee, locally called “buyog,” from where the town’s name originated. Buyogan is celebrated every August 19 in Abuyog, Leyte.
