Talakudong Fest ’15 to Open on Tacurong’s 64th Founding Anniversary


It’s a double celebration!

Tacurong’s 64th Foundation Anniversary, dubbed Tacurong Day, on August 3 will mark the opening of the most anticipated 2015 Talakudong Festival.

“We want to start Talakudong Festival on a date that is very important to all of us here in Tacurong,” stated Mayor Lina O. Montilla.

On 3 August 1951, Tacurong was officially declared to become its own municipality from being a mere barangay of Buluan. Through the years, it went through significant changes that pushed it higher on the tiers of economic, social, and political development.

The municipality was then legislated to become a city on September 18, 2000. Tacurongnons celebrate this milestone through the Talakudong Festival.

Other activities lined up for the Tacurong Day celebration are: Parada sang Barangay; Palarong Pinoy; Headgear Parade; and Kasadyahan sa Tacurong.

Talakudong Fest ‘15

After Tacurong Day, a slew of festival activities will be conducted for Tacurongnons, friends, and guests. Not to be missed are the highlights and traditions of Talakudong Fest: the Lumbayag sang Dalanon kag Kiay Kiay sa Talakudong, a street dancing and field demonstration competition; the search for the Mutya ng Lungsod ng Tacurong, a pageant for the best beauty and brains of the city; and, the garden show, trade fair, and food plaza, a bonanza of the best products the city has to offer

There are more activities in the line up so foodies, sports enthusiasts, and culture and arts fans will find something to enjoy. For a full list of schedules, check out Tacurong City’s website: (LGU-Tacurong City Information)
