Davao is a city in the Davao del Sur region in the Philippines. It is Mindanao’s most urbanized city and the archipelago’s hub for trade and commerce. Gearing for globalization, the city is still able to reserve most of its natural resources. The city proudly houses the country’s highest summit, Mt. Apo; the most exotic fruit, Durian; the country’s largest bird, the Philippine Eagle; and the most precious orchid, the Waling-waling. Aside from its overwhelming natural products and resources, the city is well known for its tourist destinations and wonderful island beaches.
As August approaches, the Kadayawan festival is a Davao City tradition that gratifies the fortunes on abundant harvest, preserved cultural heritage and a year that’s full of blessings. The festival is highlighted through singing, dancing and merrymaking all for the divine higher being that has brought all the goodness to the land.
The opening ceremony will begin with a thanksgiving mass attended by the city’s IP leaders, government heads and private sector representatives then followed by a cultural presentation from the indigenous tribes of the city. The event showcases Davao’s heritage through its traditional singing and dancing ceremonies, tribal clothing and native art pieces.
The Kadayawan Festival is a sight to see for locals and tourists alike. Its profusion of colors, events, people and local products are the contributing factors for its grand celebration. August is one of the perfect times to visit Davao as there’s just a lot of things going on.
