    Kadayawan Festival (Davao City, Philippines)

     

    Every August, the Kadayawan sa Dabaw festival colors the streets of Davao City in southern Philippines with the revelry of street dancing, float parades, pageants and events showcasing the cultural diversity and natural bounty of the region.

     

    Unlike most Philippine festivals which are religious in nature, the Kadayawan - rooted in the friendly Mandaya greeting, "madayaw" - is foremost a cultural affair, where Christians, Muslims and various tribal groups unify in thanksgiving for bountiful harvests, peace and prosperity, as well as to celebrate the beauty of the region's natural resources.
