All roads lead to Davao City for ‘festival of festivals’, Kadayawan 2017, in August

The annual Kadayawan of Davao City eyes to host its biggest ever festival to showcase why it is dubbed as the country’s “festival of festivals”.

Kadayawan is held every third week of August.

According to Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, who also chairs the Executive Committee of the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (DCCII), Kadayawan showcases that “we will surmount any challenge as we always have; we will not allow our fears to cripple us.”

Particularly this year’s Kadayawan Festival is said to be a “call for people to transcend boundaries, and show the world Davaoenos are one diverse community working as one towards peace, inclusive growth and environmental protection.”

“Life is here in Davao City. More than ever we are committed to the embodiment of this maxim,” Duterte-Carpio said. “Allow us to amaze you with the colors of culture, gastronomic delights, and showcase the best of Davao and the best of the Davaoenos.”

So to witness one of the country’s biggest festivals (aside from Cebu’s Sinulog and Kalibo’s Ati-Atihan), head to Davao come August.
