"Dagos tabi sa magayon na  ciudad nin Sorsogon .... Sararo sarabay sa progreso "

          Republic Act No. 8806, which became a law in August 16, 2006 and was ratified by the constituents of the then municipalities of Sorsogon and Bacon that resulted in the merging of the municipalities, paved the way to the birth  of Sorsogon City. Sorsogon originated from the word "Sosogon" which means trace. This, after the colonizer, in their attempt to reach there destination, ask the local inhabitants for directions. Unable to understand the language, used by the visitors, the local folks just answered  them "SOSOGON", at the same time pointing towards the river, in a gesture of showing them the route. Thus, colonizer named the place "SOSOGON", which later on became SOLSOGON, and is now known as the famous CITY OF SORSOGON.  With the making of the City Sorsogon though the ratification of a plebiscite on December 16, 2000, it is but fitting to give tribute to its foundation. Thus, the Sosogon Festival was conceptualized and celebrated, with its first festivity held last December of 2007. The festival is aimed primary at giving significance on the birth of the city of Sorsogon which showcases and highlights the history and merging of the two former municipalities.






                A Union of Unique Fiestas  The merger of the then municipalities of Bacon and Sorsogon opens a new avenue for each constituency. Bringing programs closer to the people is just one innovation that will prove how the City Government is working...TOWARDS THE PEOPLE… The merger unifies the two municipalities, with its own unique heritage, history, culture and sceneries as  it paves the way to two municipalities gliding and soaring uniquely and harmoniously. As each municipality celebrates its own fiesta in honor of its patron saint/s who led to its spiritual maturity, more scintillating, dazzling and creative programs, never been seen and heard before are whisked to make the occasions more captivating and meaningful.
