Country Philippines
Abstract This qualitative study deeply examined the socio-cultural dimensions of Jiabong's fiesta in the Philippines. It unraveled the town's historical significance, spotlighting its origin, growth, and resilience against pirate attacks in the Spanish colonial era. The pivotal role of San Pascual Baylon in the fiesta was accentuated. In the religious aspect, the study revealed diverse themes encompassing rituals and practices during the fiesta, the community's profound devotion, and religious beliefs. Exploring the economic facet, it brought to light income generation, expenditure patterns, and financial challenges tied to the fiesta. While being a crucial income source, it posed financial strains for sponsors and organizers. The cultural and social exploration of the fiesta emphasized community engagement and social bonding. Events like gatherings and homecomings contributed to the overall vibrancy. This study, providing a holistic understanding of Jiabong's fiesta, contributes significantly to shaping community identity, fostering unity, and preserving cultural traditions in Samar, Philippines.
