History of Bacoor Cityhood

Bacoor City is a first-class component city in the Calabarzon Region that is comprised of the provinces of Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Quezon, and Rizal.

It is one of the cities in the Philippines with the biggest population, and it is among the top two most populous areas (next to DasmariƱas) in the province of Cavite.

Its cityhood was proposed by representative Lani Mercado-Revilla who authored House Bill No. 4730. The bill was sent to the Senate in 2011. It was approved on third reading in December of that same year.

On April 11, 2012, Benigno Aquino III signed Republic Act No. 101600, otherwise known as “An Act Converting the Municipality of Bacoor in the Province of Cavite into a Component City to be Known as the City of Bacoor”.

The law was ratified by a plebiscite on June 23, 2012. This is the date of the annual Bacoor Cityhood Anniversary.

Additionally, the 23rd of June is a city-wide special non working holiday pursuant to Republic Act No. 10814, known as “An Act Declaring June 23 of Every Year as a Special Non Working Holiday and No Class Day in Schools in the City of Bacoor to Commemorate its Anniversary as a City.”

It lapsed into law on May 13, 2016.

Activities were halted in 2020 and 2021 due to coronavirus pandemic. City-wide events for the anniversary were revived beginning in 2022.
