Kadayawan Things to Do

I gathered up all the hottest events to give you a shortlist of the things to hit during Kadayawan. You may use this list to immerse yourself in the festivities or as a itinerary if you plan to tour friends visiting from other cities to experience Kadayawan.

  1. The Kadayawan sa Dabaw Opening is happening on August 15, 2011, 4 PM, at People’s Park. Drop by for a refresher course about Kadayawan and discover how it came to be, what it’s all about, and what else to expect for this year’s festivities. Also expect cultural performances.
  2. Hudyakaan sa Kadayawan is also happening from the 15th until the 22nd along the stretch of Roxas Avenue from starting 5 PM. Hudyakaan sa Kadayawan is the Dabawenyo version of a street party. So if you want to dance in the streets while enjoying good music and imbibing the vibe of the ordinary Dabawenyo “masses”, this is the place to be. Plus, it is bound to be a lot of fun for tourists.
  3. Hab-hab sa Chinatown is happening from August 16 until September 22 at the Sta. Ana Wharf. This event is basically a food fest so expect a whole line of booths that sell every gustatory treat you can imagine! This is the perfect Kadayawan destination for foodies ad tourists in search of edible “pasalubong” items.
  4. For the photography enthusiast, the Mindanow Photo Congress is happening from August 19 to 21 at the NCCC Mall Kadayawan Hall during mall hours.
  5. If you are craving for a night of glitz, glamour, song, dance, and comedy, you might want to check out Follies de Mwah. This live show is based on Vegas style show-girl revues featuring some of the best performers from the capital city. This is happening on August 19, 8:30 PM at the CAP Auditiorium.
  6. For a chillaxed time by the beach, you can hit the first Jazz Festival in Davao, happening on August 20-211 from 8:00 to 6:00 in the evening at Bogser’s by the sea, Seafood Restaurant and Tiki Bar at Times Beach.
  7. For boozing with style while keeping well withing budget, you could hit Marco Polo Davao’s Eagles Bar and avail of their bottomless cocktails from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM for only 150 bucks. You could also enjoy the music of one of the best local DJ’s—Gary during Fridays and Saturdays.
  8. For fashion finds, gastronomic treats, pasalubong items, little nothings, and a whole lot more, you may check out the Kadayawan Bazaar at the Davao Convention Center from August 18 to 21.
  9. If the taste of old-school partying is what you lust for, hit Route 88 on August 20 along Roxas Avenue for the “Best of the 90s” Dance Party. On the deck wil be DJ Ritchie Ritch and DJ Maxxey Perez from Club Vudu, Cebu (who happens to be a Davaoeno!)
  10. If you are into clubbing and video-mixing, you may check out the Sonique Rush Party Series at Hybrid from August 15 to 21. The party starts at eight in the evening and will feature resident DJs from Starr as well as Video-DJ Chrismyk from Manila. Chrismyk has played in Republiq, Manor, and Hacianda.
  11. For clubbing in high-style, you may also check out Starr’s Kadayawan Party which still remains top-secret as of press time. However, expect the party to be crazy, posh, and wild as most of Starr’s events are.
