Tnalak Festival commemorates the renowned T’nalak weaving, a traditional masterpiece of the Tboli weavers with unique geometric patterns made of intensely colored abaca fibers and the spirit of unity and dynamism among the people of South Cotabato amidst cultural and religious differences.

Marbel, the province’s lone city, will be the center of the Golden Year revelry and surely all roads will lead here from the opening to the colorful day of the culmination. 

T’nalak Festival opens on July 10 and culminates with the parade of colors, music and jubilation on the 18th. This year’s theme is “Sharing our Best with the World”.
