Araw ng Dabaw 2010 Activities

The love month is about to end. Few days from now, we'll gonna welcome the month of March. Davaoeños look forward to this month because Araw ng Dabaw is celebrated every March 16 of the year.

Despite the crisis and the preoccupation of Dabawenyos of the incoming 2010 elections, people in Davao will certainly celebrate the 73rd Charter Anniversary of our beloved Davao this coming March 16, 2010 with a blast.

A lot of activities are already lined up and this year's theme is Katatagan ay Kapangyarihan: Pagpapatibay at Pagdiriwang (Stability is power: Affirmation and Celebration). The mayor of Davao wants the activities to be packed in 3 days only compared to 5-7 days in the previous celebrations. The major events that Davaoeños always expect every year are :

  • Mutya ng Dabaw 2010
  • Datu Bago Awards 2010
  • Museo Dabawenyo Historical Exhibit
  • Agro-Industrial Fair
  • SaliDabaw
  • Sayawan sa D'an
  • Banda Hudyaka
  • People's Park Presents
  • Parada Dabawenyo
The major events will happen between March 14 - 16, 2010. Since March is also International Woman's Month, there are new events that highlight women entrepreneurship and empowerment - Magnegosyo ta Day and Fair Trade Bazaar and Kaon ta, Day, Lingaw ta Bay.

All these activities shall affirm and celebrate the various sources of stability that give Davao power and empower its diverse people to make it what it is today and shape what it will be in the future.

  1. Very interesting ang laban dyan sa Davao City sa pagka mayor. Sino sa tingin mo ang malakas at pwedeng manalo- si Duterte o si Nograles. Parehong higante yung magbabanggaang yan. I wish your festivities for March will be successful and grandiose. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  2. Hi Sir Mel. Talagang interesting ang local politics namin dito sa Davao. Mud slinging here and there.hehe. I really don't know who will win..wala akong kutob. Malakas kasi c Nograles sa district 1 pero malakas din si Duterte sa districts 2 and 3.
