Expect vibrant and gaudy visuals all over town. From this year’s logo to social media engagements, various instragrammable art installations, festival locations, and program performances- this year’s Tuna Festival will surely be an eye-candy. 

Hear new sound

Listen and dance to the beat of the re-imagined version of Whoah Gensan, which has seemingly become the national anthem of the Tuna Festival since its launching in 2009. This new version brands a familiar beat with new lyrics that have adapted to the present times.

Celebrate with a purpose

This year, the celebration gives honor to the integral elements of the industry’s humble beginnings- the bounty of its waters and the hard work of the fisher folks- highlighting the importance of the water which gave its people the leverage to become what it is today. Thus, the direction is to stress the importance of protecting the sea- the vital lifeline of General Santos City. This is a timely yet long overdue concern that everyone should advocate for.

New Festival Partners

The Local Government of General Santos has partnered with the Philippine Exporters Confederation Region 12 Chapter for the first time this year, spearheaded by their feisty lady president in the person of Ms. Marife Quiam.

This year also marks the first time for the Tuna Festival to have a lady festival director Ms. Chiclet M. Rillo, Executive Director of the South Cotabato Filipino-Chinese Chamber, Inc.

Be enchanted on September 5 - the festival will be concluded with a magical celebration. Tayo nang maki-Tuna Majika, Sayaw at Fiesta!
