Bambanti Festival is the official festival of the Province of Isabela.  Held annually in the month of January, the award-winning festival has become a key factor in helping to build a cultural identity for the residences of Isabela.   This promotes the province of Isabela as the country’s number one corn-producer, a status owed partially to the “bambantis” that help fend off birds feeding during the growing of their rice and corn plants.

The festival aims to showcase as well, through its unique cultural, arts and ecotourism activities, Isabela’s rich heritage, the ingenuity and industry of its people, and calls attention to the beauty of its different towns and cities.
