Transitio is an original, yearly festival commemorating the Battle of Manila of 1945, a pivotal point in the city’s history. It is a way to honor the past while celebrating the present and manifesting possibilities for the future. The day long event features artisans, art installations, performances, and the release of spirit lanterns in the heart of historic Manila. Transitio 2015 included a Maguindanao ritual and performance to cleanse the space and bring new energy to this sacred place.

Transitio started in 2010 and takes place the third weekend in February.
