The 1st Kadayawan Trade Fair and Bazaar



The term "Kadayawan" is derived from the Mandaya word “madayaw”,a warm and friendly greeting used to explain a thing that is valuable, superior, beautiful, good, or profitable. (from website) 

It's a celebration that showcases the bounty of harvest, as well as a thanksgiving for all the blessings that have been given to our city. A lot of Davaoenos look forward to this celebration, and thousands of visitors flock to Davao to celebrate with us.

Anyway, I haven't been able to celebrate Kadayawan in Davao for 3 years now, so I'm quite excited to this year. I'm especially excited for The 1st Great Kadayawan Trade Fair and Bazaar. (especially the bazaar part! :P)
