Kadayawan Sa Dabaw Festival

Madayaw! A warm and friendly greeting derived from the Dabawenyo word “dayaw” that means good. It is also used to describe any thing that is valuable, superior or beautiful. Such is “Kadayawan”, a celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest and the serenity of living.

Today, Kadayawan has metamorphosed into a “Festival of festivals”,  as it honors Davao’s heritage, its past people personified by the ancestral streets, and its industry as they parade in full regalla in thanksgiving for the blessed bestowed on the city.

Kadayawan sa Dabaw is an experience with a difference as it explores the past, present and future of the Dabawenyos, the Mindanaoans, the Filipinos. Its sights and sounds remain unparalled. Be part of the experience.

As Davao continues to be a prime tourist destination in the Philippines, DATO packages are carefully designed to showcase the natural wonders & rarities of Davao. The “Island’s best kept secret destination” is down here. Let us show you the exotic south of the islands of the Philippines.

Duaw! Come and visit Davao.
Duyog! Celebrate with us.
Every 3rd weel of August, Kadayawan.
