Crucifixion in the Philippines is a devotional practice held every Good Friday, and is part of the local observance of Holy Week.

Devotees or penitents called magdarame in Kapampangan are willingly crucified in imitation of Jesus Christ‘s suffering and death, while related practices include carrying wooden crosses, crawling on rough pavement, and self-flagellation. Penitents considered these acts to be mortification of the flesh, and undertake these to ask forgiveness for sins, to fulfil a panatà (Filipino, “vow”), or to express gratitude for favours granted.

The crucifixion practiced by Filipinos is preceded by the ritual of self-whipping. On Friday, the streets of many Filipino cities are full of flagellallants heading towards the places where the volunteers are crucified.
