tanay hane festival

The annual Hane Festival is the commemoration of the Municipality of Tanay’s Founding Anniversary. It is an agri – eco – tourism, arts, and cultural exhibition in one, showcasing Tanay’s vibrant tourism, abundant agricultural produce, healthy and sustainable environment, rich arts and culture, and amiable people. It derived its name from an ordinary expression of Tanayan (‘’hane’’) which is used to seek one’s agreement.

“Hane” exclusively identifies with Tanay. For this reason, the expression “Hane” has been adopted as the name of the Tanay’s first ever tourism and cultural celebration: the Tanay Hane Festival.

Founded in November 12, 1606, Tanay is among the oldest towns in the Province of Rizal. Along this historical backdrop, the festival is fundamentally a celebration of the proud history and rich culture of Tanay. But it also an occasion to showcase the town’s beautiful places, arts, cuisine, music, many more characteristics that are truly Tanay.

The protection of the environment is also one of the major advocacies of the municipal government and the people of Tanay. Tanay has been endowed by the Creator with rich natural resources and forests teeming with wildlife and biodiversity. Our rolling mountains and massive rock formations inspire awe while sweeping landscapes, large and clean bodies of inland water, caves, and enchanting waterfalls abound everywhere and are a marvel to explore. Thru the Hane Festival, greater awareness of the need to preserve and protect this heritage, along with the promotion of the local culture and tradition, were conveyed to the public.

The following are the Vision, Mission, and Goals and Objectives of the Hane Festival:

HANE FESTIVAL: A full showcase of Tanay as the Home for Adventure and Nature Experience, giving highlight to the town’s finest nature and adventure destinations, abundant agricultural produce, healthy and sustainable environment, rich arts, cuisine, culture and traditions, and amiable people, while producing livelihood to the community and increased revenue and tourist arrivals to the municipality, thus making Tanay as the Adventure Tourism Capital of the Philippines by 2020.

In honor of and thanksgiving for the founding anniversary of the Municipality of Tanay, the local government launched the annual celebration of Hane Festival which is designed to further the promotion, development, and conservation of the town’s flourishing natural attractions, various destinations, abundant products and resources, and rich arts, culture, cuisine, and traditions
