Taong Putik Festival

Taong Putik Festival is an annual religious festival in the small village of Bibiclat in the town of Aliaga, Nueva Ecija. Held every June 24th, the devotees of Saint John the Baptist pay homage to him on his feast day by wearing costumes patterned to his attire by soaking themselves in mud and cover their body with dried banana leaves to celebrate his feast day.

It is said that the taong putik goes house to house or ask people for alms in form of candles or money to buy candles which they offer for Saint John the Baptist.


They then converge at the church to offer the candles and say their prayers.

Devotees are called as "Taong Putik" or "Nag-sa-San Juan" by the town folks of Aliaga because of their effort to imitate Saint John the Baptist by wearing costumes patterned after his attire using native materials.
