    Started in 1980, the MassKara festival was conceived to add color and cheer to the city’s Charter Day anniversary. The term MassKara was coined from to words namely “mass” meaning crowd, and Spanish word “cara” meaning face. When the two words combine, it is defined as a “mask” or in another word, “many faces.”

    The event was made in order to lift up the spirit of Negrenses (residents of Negros Province) who faced crisis in their sugar industry during that era. Thus the festival’s symbol of mask, was adapted by organizers to foster the locals’ resilient spirit during these difficult times.
