Every year, National Heritage Month is celebrated in the month of May by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 439. The celebration aims to create among the Filipino people a consciousness, respect, and love for the legacies of the nation’s cultural history.

As part of the said celebration, the NCCA enjoins all cultural agencies, national government agencies, schools, Philippine embassies and consulates, public libraries, and private institutions to participate in the national event by encouraging them to initiate their own heritage-related activities for the month of May.
