  • Binding Davao City from 11 to 1: Kadayawan sa Dabaw 2016
  • The “King of Festivals” is back, and though the current city administration promises a simpler and more meaningful celebration, it doesn’t take away the fact that Kadayawan sa Dabaw 2016 will be just as colorful as it has been.

    This year’s Kadayawan Sa Dabaw promises to uphold the ideals that it has stood by since the beginning: recognizing our Lumad and Muslim brothers and sisters while still celebrating the bountiful harvest of Davao City and its nearby villages.
