Kadayawan Festival 2018 Schedule of Activities

 KADAYAWAN is a festivity of life and thanksgiving for the plentiful gifts of nature and peaceful living. It derives from the pleasant Dabawenyo greeting, "Madayaw". Dayaw means good, precious, and beautiful.  So, if Madayaw is an adjective , Kadayawan is a nown, as in goodness or honesty.
