  • Panagdadapun Festival: Commemorating Quirino’s History
  • The province of Quirino rarely rings a bell in everyday conversation, but one week every September puts this province squarely in the eyes of the country: the Panagdadapun Festival.

    Panagdadapun is an Ilocano word which means assembly. It’s a word that’s so appropriate for the festival that it reverberates throughout the province of Quirino. Quririnians from all over the province gather to showcase what the province is all about in the week-long festivities.

    Highlights of the festival include the Street Dancing Showdown, Gitarock (Battle of the Bands), and the Search for Mr. and Ms. Quirino.

    The Panagdadapun Festival is held every September 8 – 10.
