This is a week-long celebration of the founding of the city that culminates every 16th of March with a socio-civic and military parade, sports competitions, and fireworks. One of the highlights of the celebration is the selection of the Mutya ng Dabaw (Miss Davao) from among the most beautiful ladies in the land every 15th of March.
This internationally renowned festival is a weeklong celebration and thanksgiving for nature’s bountiful harvest. Celebrated annually every third week of August. The activity coincides with the harvest time of Davao’s exotic fruits and the blooming of the waling-waling (vanda sanderana). The festival culminates with its most famous and much-awaited grand floral parade (where one can see countless and breathtaking mobile floats full of real and fresh flowers) and the dancing in the streets.
