Kadayawan Festival 2017 Davao City

One of the most spectacular festivals in the Philippines is the Kadayawan Festival

This is my first time to attend Kadayawan Festival in Davao City. Rumors say, Mindanao is a dangerous place, but they are so wrong. I had witnessed the martial law in Mindanao and to be honest, it is so peaceful in Mindanao. 

The Kadayawan Festival is an annual Festival in the city of Davao in the Philippines. Its name derives from the friendly greeting Madayaw, from the Dabawenyo word dayaw, meaning good, valuable, superior or beautiful. We had a great time, and we are so overwhelmed the beauty of Davao City. 

I'm so impressed with the safety of the people watching the kadayawan festival, 100% safe. The security is very superb, I really feel super safe. Good job to our Military, Police, Volunteers for giving great security in the big event. It is safe for attending the Kadayawan Festival. I got the chance to see also my brother in Davao. 

He and his team are volunteers for the safety of the big Kadayawan Festival. Foreigners from other countries came also to watch the best part of the Kadayawan Festival is the Street dances. The performance is awesome, and it got me so shocked, it was really so beautiful. The costumes are so colorful and I love it so much.

People's Park is one of the most popular destinations in Davao City for tourists and visitors alike.

Games and Activities are also held here in People's Park.

The place is clean and well-maintained. The people also are discipline, and they don't want any trash in the park.


The tribal games aim to preserve the culture of the indigenous people who are slowly being forgotten.

I really enjoyed watching those games, old but never forgotten.


People not only from Davao but from other parts of the country and even foreigners came to witness "INDAK-INDAK SA KADAYAWAN" This is a street dancing, one of the most anticipated events of the KADAYAWAN FESTIVAL in Davao.

I'm so happy to watch those children and also the teenager, Family having a great time with their kids and most important is the true smile of the Filipinos.

The Floral Floats Parade is also one of the best showcases in Kadayawan Festival. It gives life, thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of the culture, and the bounties of the harvest of the Davao City. You must watch this and never missed each one of them.

A big salute to those people who gave us the best security and safeness in the Kadayawan Festival 2017 in Davao City. We are so thankful for all the sacrifices those people gave to us, to secure and enjoyed watching the festival. 

Looking forward to attending again next years Kadayawan Festival 2018.
