Representatives of the 11 Tribes of Davao at the Opening of Kadayawan Festival 2016

Celebrate Smart Kadayawan 2016

By: Ria Jose

Kadayawan Festival 2016 officially opened last Monday, August 15, 2016. And the best way to enjoy the festival is to have a Smart Kadayawan 2016 celebration.

Unlike most festivals in the Philippines, the Kadayawan Festival is a thanksgiving festival without Christian roots. It is a celebration of Davao’s 11 lumad tribes and the bountiful harvest that the region receives every year. It highlights the melting pot of cultures that make Davao a vibrant, booming, interesting region.

This year, SMART renewed its commitment to the growth of Davao’s tourism and development via their support of the Kadayawan Festival. First in the #SMARTKadayawan line up of events is the Opening Ceremonies of Kadayawan Festival. The leaders of the 11 tribes of Davao opened the festivities.
