Welcome to Partakan Festival, where people celebrate these three important things: brotherhood, passion, and freedom.
Riders and tourists alike flocked the sandy venue of this year’s festival — three days of fun under the sun while meeting individuals with the same taste of adventure as theirs.
The event happened last April 14 to 16 at Anguib Beach in Sta. Ana, Cagayan Valley. It’s a long ride from Manila (14 to 20 hours estimated travel time.. yikes!), but it was all worth it. Here, we give you 8 reasons why you shouldn’t miss it next year!
8 Reasons Why You Should NOT Miss Partakan Festival
Go rough and experience camping by the beach (if you haven’t already)! Bring along your tent, build your empire and set your own camp, meet fellow campers and build a bonfire, and wake up to the sound of the waves. Wonderful!
7. Kayaking and Beach Volleyball
Part of Partakan Festival’s lineup of activities are some fun water and beach sports that anyone can join. Definitely for the thrill-seeker!

This one will be enjoyed by the kids (or you can try playing here, too, hehe):
5. Handsome motorbikes on display
You can check out shiny new models on display during the event. Feel free to take photos for reference and when you get back to Manila, make it your inspiration to work harder to get your hands on that motorbike of your dreams. This ride will take you to places you’ve never been (case in point: Cagayan!).
