Mango-Bamboo Festival
San Carlos City, Pangasinan - Labor day

The lure of the sparkling blue seas and clear skies is often hard to resist for weary busybodies like you.

One good advice for your peace of mind come doesn’t resist. Succumb and pamper yourself and your family with a fun adventure in the mango bamboo festival of Pangasinan.

Pangasinenses are widely known for their annual Pistay Dayat fluvial parade in the Lingayen Gulf every first of May. What started as a Labor Day feast by the Americans have now become a thanksgiving day for a bountiful harvest and a prime tourist attraction for the province.

Now emerging as a new tourist attraction is the Mango-Bamboo Festival of San Carlos City in Central Pangasinan.

Why Mango-Bamboo Festival? Why not palayok (earthen pot) or banig (mat) festival since San Carlos City also produces these items in commercial quantities? Pangasinan city settled on the Mango-Bamboo Festival idea because the two products have a greater chance to compete in the world market.

Thus the Mango-Bamboo Festival is not just meant as an entertainment event. It has a much practical and nobler vision for the festival. The abundance and quality of these two products is an opportunity to make a difference for his city and Pangasinan."

It is said the mango bamboo festival could serve as an instrument to help improve the marketing of mango and bamboo and increase the earning capabilities of mango growers and bamboo craftsmen, who, for lack of connection and access to exporters and traders, rely solely on middlemen to market their products.
