Celebrating Kadayawan 2020 with Proudly Davao Flavors

Malagos Lechon Belly

Back in the day, the ethnic tribes of Davao would come together to celebrate abundant crops, performing rituals that paid tribute to the nature gods. They used to display fruits, vegetables, and flowers at the front of their houses as a sign of respect and gratefulness for the great year they had. These days, these practices are no longer done but the spirit of gratitude is still there. In fact, August 24, 2020 has been announced by President Rodrigo Duterte as a Special Non-Working Holiday in the City in respect to the Indigenous Peoples’ Day, one of the major highlights of the Kadayawan Festival. The day is a tribute to the 11 tribes of Davao City, to preserve their history and culture.


If it weren’t for the onset of the pandemic, Davao City would have been buzzing by now. For this month, the whole City would have been alive with banderitas and different activities every night. Most would have been busy preparing for the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan, Floral Float Parade, and the Search for the Hiyas ng Dabaw 2020.
