The Tagultol Festival is happening every first and second day of August, it is celebrated usually with street parade which is i like the most ( i love the idea of jamming with street performers hihihi) there are also numerous cultural programs all over the place. mass and procession as well. Theres also a fluvial parade done in the afternoon normally on the 2nd day of fiesta. At night you will get to see bands, choral competition, singing and dancing (genuine talent of people from Atimonan) all in expression of gratitude towards the years bountiful catch . Tagultol festival started in year 2003, tagultol is an old fishing method used by atimonanins which is derived from the word ugtol which simply means bounce. It consists of a rectangular stone tied at the end of abaca strings dip in honey.=) calamansi and other similar plants with a bait tied 2 feet above the stone before dipping in the water and moved in a bouncing movement. The event showcases both cultural and sports activities, talents and beauty contests participated by community leadership and organizations and individuals headed by the local government and people from Atimonan…

Many Atimonanins are part Chinese or Spanish. Some Atimonanins can also speak Bicolano, Lan-nang, or Spanish.
