• FEBRUARY 1-28

The Cagsawa Festival aims to celebrate the indomitable spirit and resilience of Albyanos, and not the memory of the disaster's horrors.

The month-long Cagsawa Festival, celebrated every February, kicks off at the historic and world famous Cagsawa Ruins Park, marked by the remains of a church belfry amid a tumble of bricks that define the layout of a Spanish era settlement. Only the top of the belfry remains above ground after the church and the settlement were buried by the violent Mayon Volcano eruption in 1814.
