OFFICIAL KAAMULAN FESTIVAL 2019 BUKIDNON Schedule of Activities

Who’s ready for the Kaamulan Festival 2019? The annual gathering of the 7 Bukidnon hill tribes is drawing near. Just a few weeks ago, Bukidnon Online shared that after 40 years, the annual Kaamulan Festival in Bukidnon now has set dates every year. This means that starting 2019, tourists, guests, visitors and locals interested to witness the only authentic ethnic festival in the Philippines can plan accordingly.

By virtue of a provincial resolution, the Kaamulan Festival in Bukidnon will now be held from March 23 to April 23 every year.

UPDATE: Due to the Holy Week, Kaamulan Festival 2019 will start on March 23, 2019 and will end on April 13, 2019. Malaybalay City, the capital of Bukidnon, will be the venue of most, if not all, activities.

This is definitely good development, especially since more and more people want to participate in the Kaamulan Festival 2019 celebration in Bukidnon, which is a yearly gathering of the 7 hill tribes of the Province of Bukidnon namely: Talaandig, Tigwahanun, Matigsalug, Higaonon, Bukidnon, Manobo and Umayamnun.

A former Tourism Secretary even called Kaamulan as the only authentic ethnic festival in the Philippines. The Kaamulan Festival activities will be held in Malaybalay City, the capital of Bukidnon.

Fun fact: Kaamulan is an indigenous Bukidnon term that means “gathering” for any purpose.

The full Kaamulan Festival 2019 schedule of activities will be released next week and, as always, Bukidnon Online will be FIRST to share it with all of you.

You can get an instant copy of the 2019 Kaamulan schedule through email if you SUBSCRIBE HERE (click, leave your email address and please don’t forget to check your email and confirm subscription)

Please note, however, that the sitting Bukidnon governor has the authority to extend or change the dates but only if there is a need and if there’s a justifiable reason to do so. The sitting governor also has the authority to move the festival to a different schedule but again, only if there’s a justifiable reason to do so.

The Kaamulan Festival draws thousands of people to Bukidnon, most particularly in Malaybalay City, the capital and where most of the events take place. Bukidnon Online regularly posts Kaamulan schedule of activities. Check the previous schedules so you can have an idea of the festival highlights.

The biggest crowd drawer is undoubtedly the Ethnic Street Dancing Competition. If you plan to witness that, best to already book your accommodations early since Malaybalay doesn’t have enough lodging places yet. You can search for discounted rooms below.

Meanwhile, here’s what you’ve all been waiting for.

BOOK DISCOUNTED ROOMS IN MALAYBALAY HERE or start your search below

Malaybalay:

Loiza’s Suites – A bit more expensive than other choices but they’re the go-to places for special occasions. They recently opened their pool and bar.
Bukidnon Business Hotel – Very central location. Along Fortich Street, the same main thoroughfare where the street dancers will also pass through. Just a few steps away from Gaisano Malaybalay and Chowking.
1st Avenue Apartelle – This one offers value for money. It’s in the inner part of the city but you can always take the local motorela and it’s just a few minutes away from downtown.
Waterpool Micro Hotel – Located at the outskirts of the city so you would need to allow around 15 minutes in order to reach the city proper.
Pitcher Plant Farm – Also located at the outskirts of the city (about half an hour away). It could be an interesting choice for fans of flora and fauna and for those who prefer solitude and to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
