Minalabac Town Fiesta: Tumatarok Festival

Minalabac is a town in Camarines Sur, the Bikol’s premier province, with a rich cultural and historical significance.

Historically, the town is one of the oldest pueblos in Camarines. It is blessed with the presence of Bikol River that has served as an important transport system for people and their farm products.

Latest archaeological findings reveal that Minalabac is one of the early settlements where trade and commerce flourished during the pre-Hispanic period. Then there is the annual Tumatarok Festival, a colorful event held every May 11, (which is today).

This festival is a celebration of bountiful harvest the land has given to its people through the intercession of their Catholic patron saints, Apostles James and Philip.
