Niyogyugan Festival 2016 Events

Yearly Niyogyugan Festival is happening in Quezon Province. The festival aims to showcase Quezon products such as products made from coconut tree and other products from different municipalities and cities of Quezon Province. Each town has one product to offer. Promotion of agri-tourism is also one of the priorities of the said festival.

In 2011, Quezon Province held the first AGRI-TOURISM Trade Fair that featured booths with agricultural products from different municipalities in Quezon. In the year 2012, the very first provincial festival was held, it is the celebration of the tree of life (which is coconut) and called Niyogyugan Festival. Since then, the festival becomes a yearly celebration happening month of August.

For this year the theme would be “Tara na sa Quezon: Niyogyugan Festival 2016.” Niyogyugan was derived from the words niyog (coconut) and yugyug (to move to a beat). So expect jolly, lively and colorful festival with the coconut as the main theme of the celebration.  It would be two long weeks celebration starting on August 15-27, 2016.

Agri-Tourism Trade – Niyogyugan Festival Quezon

Awhile ago I browsed my compilation of photos and saw these photos from Niyogyugan Festival (Celebration of the Tree of Life). The celebration is the 2nd Agri-Tourism Trade showing the different products of agricultural in Quezon Province. Well, coconut is the main product here in Quezon reason why the theme for this year is Niyogyugan (Niyog – tagalog word for coconut). Silly me, lol, I didn’t share the event which held last August.

It was a week celebration with different activities like Agri-Tourism Trade Fair Booth, Sayaw sa Niyog Competition (Dance with Coconut Competition), Festival Queen Competition, Agri-Tourism Exposition, and Float Parade Competition.
