About Pasalamat Festival
La Carlota, known as the “Drumbeating City of Beauty, Music and Dance”. The Pasalamat Cultural and Arts Festival is a Thanksgiving Festival of the La Carloteños to God Almighty for all the bountiful harvest and blessings they have received all throughout the year of hardships and sacrifices.
