Kadayawan Festival is a yearly event celebrated in the beautiful city of Davao. Its name is actually coined from ‘dayaw’ meaning ‘bountiful’.

Just as the translation suggests, Kadayawan Festival 2017 embraces life and gives the locals an opportunity to offer thanksgiving for all of their blessings. These blessings included the celebration of life, the productivity of nature, the rich heritage and the bountiful harvest. Kadayawan Festival is marked every third week of August.

On the streets, different exhibits feature flowers and vegetable stands with participants dancing along the streets. Adventure junkies will absolutely love the local and power boat races as they combine stamina and the spectacular outdoors of Davao city.
