Zambapalooza is a three-day and two-night festival celebrating and bringing in the forefront Zambales's undeniable passions: the beach, good food, and soulful music. Ignite Philippines Inc. brings together the province’s best of everything for three days of fun, entertainment, and discovery.

Fully supported by the local community and the provincial and town government units, Zambapalooza promises to be a packed weekend that’s more than just a party.

The Beach

San Narciso is known for its beaches and the waves that has brought delight to surfers who consider it a constant weekend getaway during surf season. Ride your first waves in discounted surf classes and discover a new freedom above the waters.

Those who have been seeking time for pampering and relaxation may opt to watch the Aeta cultural shows or get their own henna tattoo. If you would love to learn a new craft, there will be pottery classes giving you a chance to mold earth and experience an ancient practice. Explorers can go to half-day city tours and learn the other top spots and not-to-miss destinations in nearby cities.

After a great day at the beach and after sampling new food from local cooks, get ready to jam and pour your heart out to two intense nights of music. Zambapalooza brought the best!
