Pitlagong Festival - Cebu Province Events

Pitlagong Festival

September 28 - 29 | Argao 


The Pitlagong Festival honors Argao's patron saint, Michael the Archangel.  The festival is celebrated through a parade, a street dancing competition, and a ritual showdown. 


The term pitlagong is a bamboo instrument used to clean the sugong. The sugong is a bamboo container used in collecting tuba, or coconut wine. Tuba is a traditional Filipino drink and it is believed that the tuba will not taste good without the pitlagong.


Because of what the festival is named after, it is expected that locals will be drinking tuba during merrymaking in the festival.
