Kawayanan Festival

Gloria | October 1

Aside from its large produce of rice and coconut, Gloria has an exclusive reputation of possessing vast tracts of land growing different varieties of bamboo. The staging of the Kawayanan Festival focuses on the affluence of "kawayan" (bamboo) in the area. Similar to other festivals, it is celebrated with street dancing performances mostly by students from different levels with costumes made from bamboo materials. A trade fair is also a special attraction with its varied display of products like furniture, souvenirs and novelties all made from bamboo.
