The Concept of Bilao Festival originated as a salvo to the celebration of Araw ng Parokya on August 31, 2002. This is a joint effort of the Parish of St. Catherine of Alexandria, headed by Msgr. Antonio Obeña and The LGU of Pagbilao, Quezon headed by Mayor Romeo R. Portes. The responsible brains for the Street dancing and showdown competitions were: Casiano M. Ayapana from the LGU, the late Engr. Christopher Ayaton, and Rowena L. Arcelo representing the Parish of St. Catherine of Alexandria.
During the pioneering stage, there were 15 participating groups and composed of religious organizations, schools, barangays and civic organizations. The Team Energy Corporation co-sponsored the Festival.
From the on participation to the Bilao Festival tremendously each year. In 2008, however, the religious counterpart ceased to celebrate with the LGU, instead had its own celebration of Araw ng Parokya. This promoted the LGU to carry through the festivities as part of the tourism development.
It showcases the rich resources, traditions, values, aspirations, customs, history, culture, and arts of the municipality of Municipality of Pagbilao, Quezon through dances, colorful costumes, and extra ordinary props all derived from local materials.
