Feast of San Isidro Labrador

Every agricultural province celebrates the feast of San Isidro Labrador to thank the patron saint for good harvest.

Unlike Lucban, Quezon who is famous for its Pahiyas festival. Sariaya has an Agawan Festival. Participating houses and buildings are decorated extravagantly but they are not just for display. These products are given (sometimes thrown) to the people after the parade or the judges pass by. Before the end of the day, the top 3 winning designs are awarded.

If you want to visit and see the Agawan festival, come at least a day before. Traffic is bad on the 15th because all other towns and provinces are having their own celebrations as well.
