Kadayawan sa Dabaw: A Celebration of Bountiful Harvest

The Kadayawan was conceptualized in 1986 as “The Festival of Apo Duwaling” to showcase Davao City’s iconic symbols: Mount Apo, the Philippines’ highest peak;  the Durian, touted as the King of Fruits; and the Waling-waling, the Queen of Orchids. In 1988, the celebration was renamed Kadayawan sa Dabaw. 

Now on its 30th year, Kadayawan sa Dabaw continues to highlight Davao City’s natural treasures–its unique flora and fauna, and more especially, its diverse ethnic culture.

Kadayawan is celebrated in August with a plethora of events–a fusion of modern, contemporary and traditional activities–which culminates in a frenzy of merrymaking in the streets, called Indak-indak sa Kadalanan

… capped by a parade of colorful floats adorned with fresh flowers and fruits.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
