Coron Festival

A showcase of events highlighted by a street presentation participated in by the town’s different public and private schools and sectors gives a week-long of fun and merriment to visitors and local people.

The religious package of devotion and prayer in honor of Albay’s patroness, Nuestra Señora de Salvacion (Our Lady of Salvation) is the peak event of the festival, colorfully drawing thousands of devotees and religious groups through a long maritime procession of different local sea vessels on the sea spray of the serene pacific ocean going to the quiet barangay of Joroan, the home of the miraculous image.
