As of now, tourism is still a minor but growing part of the province’s economy. Several attractions draw tourists from here and abroad including festivals, beaches, old structures and other sights.
Among the festivals of Quezon, the three most prominent and famous are probably the Pahiyas Festival of Lucban, the Niyugyugan Festival of Quezon Province and Katang Festival of Calauag.
The Pahiyas Festival is the unique celebration of the people of Lucban of the Feast of St. Isidore, the patron of farmers. Held every May 15 of the year, the Pahiyas Festival is the time when neighbors compete against each other in decorating their houses in the most creative manner. The natives of Lucban use vegetables and grains like rice, chayotes, and radishes, as well as a special material, called kiping. Kiping is an ornament made of grounded rice flour shaped into leaves and dyed in different colors. These materials serve as the ingredients for the colorful houses that the Pahiyas has become famous for.
