IT was a long and arduous two-year hiatus but now, the “Kadayawan sa Davao” festival is back.

Finally, this renowned festival will be celebrated in-person so everyone within the city and the tourism industry itself will be able to celebrate it with all the exhilaration and excitement, which was clearly absent when the past celebrations were done virtually through computer screens.

Now on its 37th year of celebration, the festival serves as thanksgiving for the bountiful harvest, rich culture, and a celebration of life.

To officially celebrate the festival, Park Inn by Radisson Davao launched the “Pinta Madayaw: A Kadayawan Art Exhibit” in partnership with Group of Aspiring Mindanawon Artists (GAMA) and the hotel’s Kadayawan room and F&B promotions last August 10.

The event was graced by Davao City Vice Mayor, Hon. Melchor Quitain, Deputy Mayor of the Bagobo – Tagabawa Tribe, Bae Sheirelle Uy Anino, Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia, Consul Novita, friends from the local art scene, media and tourism and corporate sector.

The exhibit aims to support local artists from GAMA and Pasudkaroy where 10 percent of the sold art pieces will be used to purchase art materials for the children trained under Pasudkaroy. Pasudkaroy is a non-profit group composed of visual artists who belong to the Indigenous Persons (IP) community and one of their biggest ambitions is to widen the knowledge of IPs in terms of visual arts and to increase the number of visual artists who are part of IPs.

Along with the ribbon cutting of the exhibit, the hotel launched the Kadayawan offerings that will be offered until the end of the month.

Take delight on the cake of the month: Flourless Durian Cheesecake, specially curated by the hotel’s pastry team. Have a bite into sliced layers of graham crust and cream cheese, decorated with beautiful Malagos Chocolate dark and white chocolate garnish. The whole cake is sold at P1,600 while a slice goes out at P195.

Looking for something more savory? Enjoy the Kadayawan Set Meal at P3,850 – good for 5 persons! Each set comes with an abundant platter of grilled chicken, tuna, squid, beef satay, sinigang na hipon sa santol, turmeric fried rice, ube rice turon and pomelo juice.

Enjoy a well-deserved staycation and a Kadayawan-themed set meal for two that will surely take you on a local culinary experience! Room package is at P6,555.

Celebrate the 37th Kadayawan sa Davao festival at Park Inn by Radisson Davao and enjoy a string of activities and offerings exclusively available for the whole month of August!
