How to get to Bukidnon

Kaamulan Festival 2014 Schedule of Activities

THIS IS THE FINAL AND UPDATED KAAMULAN FESTIVAL 2013 SCHEDULE! — The Kaamulan Festival 2013 fever is finally here! The 2013 Bukidnon Kaamulan Festival is inarguably the biggest festival in the entire Province of Bukidnon. Bukidnon Online first shared the news about Kaamulan 2013 a few days ago. Now, we have more updates for all of you, dear readers, including an UPDATED and FINAL Kaamulan Festival 2013 Schedule!

The Bukidnon Kaamulan Festival 2013 theme is: “Sustaining Culture and Unity Towards Progress and Development

But before I proceed, here’s a little bit of trivia for you: Did you know that this Bukidnon festival called the Kaamulan Festival was called “the only authentic ethnic festival in the Philippines” by a former Tourism Secretary? (and Bukidnon Online was the VERY FIRST to break this story online! Even government agencies, news wires and the secretary himself lauded this Bukidnon news blog!)

The Kaamulan Festival is the Bukidnon festival that everyone looks forward to every year. It is a gathering of Bukidnon’s 7 hill tribes namely Bukidnon, Tigwahanon, Umayamnon, Manobo, Higaonon, Talaandig and Matigsalug.

Bukidnon Online was not able to cover the Kaamulan Festival 2012, unfortunately. This Bukidnon blogger was in the United States of America as an official fellow of a U.S. Department of State-sponsored leadership program for US Embassy-nominated emerging global leaders. Hence, one cannot apply for it – the U.S. government has to choose you.

Anyways, hopefully Bukidnon Online as well as other members of the Bukidnon Bloggers and Social Media Club can cover the Kaamulan Festival 2013. There will be a blogging, social media workcamp on February 2013 so if you’re interested to learn the ins and outs of web blogging and responsible use of social media platforms, join the Bukidnon Bloggers and Social Media Club (<– click!) today. You can also send an email to bukidnononline (at) gmail (dot) com if you wish to participate or sponsor.
