The Tuna Festival Council composed of new members, led by Ronald Velasquez as Festival Director and comebacking Bebot Haw as Vice Chairman has just released the Tuna Festival 2011 Schedule of Events.

The Tuna Festival 2011 is the 13th incarnation of South Central Mindanao’s most famous week-long celebration and this time, it commemorates General Santos City’s 43rd Charter Anniversary which falls on September 5, 2011.  The Tuna Festival also brings focus on the commodity which made General Santos City known all over as the “Tuna Capital of the Philippines.”

For this year, the Tuna Festival 2011 schedule of Events supplied to us by Mr. Ronald Velasquez is still not complete and will be updated on a regular basis.  Still it will show you how some of the major events have been lined up this time from August 26 to September 5, 2011.   Take note of the Mr. & Ms. GenSan 2011 activities and the National Tuna Congress, for instance.  (Update:  It is now more or less, complete.)

The theme for the 13th Tuna Festival approved by Festival Chair Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio by the way is “Exploring New Depths, Conquering New Heights”.
