- 16-19 October 2018 (6th Annual Festival)
BINULIG FESTIVAL is an annual thanksgiving for the bountiful harvest of the city encompassing the empowered people, its rich culture and abundant products.
It is celebrated by Panabo City every October as a thanksgiving celebration for a bountiful harvest.
This year’s theme is “Pagpapasalamat, Pananghiusa, Paglambo (Thanksgiving, Unity, Progress)”.
This five-day celebration began with the Sayaw sa Kadalanan, a vibrant street dancing parade at the Panabo City Gym Grounds. It also coincides with the Buwan ng Tribu, a celebration of the Indigenous Peoples’ month in the city.
Panabo City is known as the banana capital of the Philippines because of its vast banana plantations.
