The Dinagyang Festival is the undying devotion of the Filipinos to the Señor Sto. Niño. It's a symbol of our culture and heritage, our unity as a people.
The Dinagyang is a religious and cultural festival in Iloilo City, Philippines held on the fourth Sunday of January, or right after the Sinulog In Cebu and the Ati-Atihan in Aklan. It is held both to honor the Santo Niño and to celebrate the arrival on Panay of Malay settlers and the subsequent selling of the island to them by the Atis.
