Tarlac City, officially the City of Tarlac, is a first class and capital city of the province of Tarlac in the Philippines.
Tarlac City is the usual bus stop for commuters travelling to the Ilocos Region and Cordillera provinces. There are several shopping malls established within the city. To name a few, there is the SM City Tarlac, which is the first SM Supermall in the Tarlac Province, located along McArthur Highway in San Roque; the Magic Star Mall along Romulo Blvd. in Brgy. Cut-cut; My MetroTown Mall in Brgy. Sto Cristo; and the CityWalk also located in Brgy. San Roque. The Malatarlak Festival, celebrated every January in Tarlac City, is one of the most remarkable festivals in the province. In 2011, the City Mayor then changed the name of the festival to Melting Pot Festival, but it is still remembered by its former name. The festival is a commemoration to the first people who built civilization in the province, the Aetas.
