Agawan Festival - Quezon Events

Agawan Festival

May 15| Sariaya, Quezon, Philippines
A primary tourist attraction in Sariaya, Agawan Festival is a yearly thanksgiving celebration in honor of "San Isidro De Labrador, " the Spanish patron saint of farmers, one so old that not one alive today knows when and how it started. 
The Bagakays, an identifiably "Sariayahin" feature of the festival, are young bamboo trees cut and bedecked with a variety of goodies that form a gently swaying beautiful and bountiful canopy along the well decorated route of the saint’s afternoon procession. The celebration mirrors the townfolks generosity in spirit, their faith in the Divine Providence and their ingenuity in craft production and culinary traditions.
