Visit Albay in the summer month of April and rediscover the province’s annual celebration of culture, cuisine and craft: Magayon Festival. The festival was originally conceived to relive the legend of Mt. Mayon whose name comes from ‘Daragang Magayon’ or beautiful maiden in the Bikol language.
Today, the Magayon Festival is a celebration of all things beautiful in Albay: the exuberant spirit, zest for life, artistry and kaleidoscopic talents of the Albayano; the matchless picturesque Albay countryside and its colorful history steeped in age-old traditions and legends.
With the myriad wonders, both the famous and the undiscovered, that Albay has to offer, it is little wonder that a once week-long festival is now celebrated for an entire month with a wide range of activities, events, sights and sounds line up for everyone to enjoy.
