Santa Rosa Laguna Celebrates 22nd Sikhayan Festival and 229th Founding Anniversary

Every January 18, the City celebrates its Sikhayan Festival in conjunction with its Founding Anniversary. With more progress anticipated to come in the near future, the Sikyahan this year signals the birth of a modern city.

 Sikhayan, which stands for Pagsisikap sa Kabuhayan, is an annual event celebrating the Rosenians’ (residence and sectors of Santa Rosa Laguna) spirit of enterprise that has, through the decades, fueled the city’s economic growth. Under the “new normal” the event is highlighted by the annual street dance competition participated by students from the different local public schools.

Sikhayan recognizes the contributions made by Santa Rosa’s sectors, from farmers, fisherfolks, artisans, workers, and entrepreneurs big and small, to the city’s continuing progress.


Coinciding with the city’s founding as a separate and independent town in the Province of Laguna, the Sikhayan Festival showcases the Roseñians perseverance and determination to improve their lives and that of their communities.

It is a festival that pays tribute to the people’s unrelenting and resolute effort, to their profound sense of community, to their deeply rooted cultural heritage, and to their enterprising spirit. As proven by its history, the Roseñians have worked hard and the Sikhayan Festival is the people’s way of giving thanks and looking forward to a much better future.
