Romblon all set to host 3rd MIMAROPA Festival this month


Romblon, the marble capital of the Philippines, is now gearing up for the MIMAROPA 3 Festival which it will host on November 20 to 25.

Ondiongan, Romblon will be the home of the festival this year, which will feature tourism-trade-agri-innovation fair, battle of festivals street dance and Ginoo and Binibining MIMAROPA Festival 2017.

A techno-investment forum will likewise be held.

Now on its third year, the MIMAROPA Festival is one of the strategies developed by the Region 4-B to boost tourism and investments.

Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo earlier said that Romblon proves to be “one of the best-kept secrets” of Region 4-B due to its isolation, noting that the island-province is ready to unravel its world-class attractions when it during annual MIMAROPA Festival.

“While Romblon has been known as the largest marble producer in the Philippines and exporter of best-quality marble products, the province possesses also the qualities of its neighboring Palawan province,” Teo said in an earlier statement.
