Be Part of the Celebration at the Diyandi Festival at Iligan City, Philippines

Have you ever witnessed a festival in the Philippines? If not, then you're in for a feast for your eyes (and stomach)! The Philippines is known for its colorful festivals filled with merrymaking and lots of scrumptious food. If you're planning to head to Mindanao in September, you might want to schedule your trip during the Diyandi Festival.

Celebrated every September, Iliganons come together to honor their patron saint, St. Michael the Archangel, in a festival called Diyandi. During this time, locals and tourists flock to Iligan City as it comes alive and transforms into a huge and colorful stage where performers dance to loud and merry music and food is openly served in locals' homes. You will also find delight in purchasing unique items in the trade fairs as well as feast your eyes on spectacular art exhibits and entertaining beauty pageants.

Unlike the more popular festivals in the Philippines, the Diyandin Festival is quite new in the festival scene. However, although it has only been established in the early 2000s, it is still as festive as the more established festivals in the country. Perhaps one advantage is that since it is not as popular as other local festivals, you can expect a smaller crowd here.

Philippine festivals are truly one of a kind. Experience the Diyandin Festival in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte, Philippines! Book your Philippine holiday today.
