Kadayawan 2016

If you happen to be in Davao City this month, particularly during the third week, do not be surprised if all stores, restaurants and malls are full of people. It is the time of the year when people flock to the city to celebrate Kadayawan Festival.

You will also notice that streets are smelly as durian which can be eaten anytime, anywhere. You may also want to try other fruits available during the time like mangosteen, rambutan, lanzones, marang and pomelo.

Kadayawan Festival is an annual festival in Davao City. Its name derives from the friendly greeting "Madayaw", from the Dabawenyo word "dayaw", meaning good, valuable, superior or beautiful. Kadayawan is known to be a  celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest and serenity of living.
