Annual festival celebrating the establishment of Bukidnon province that runs from mid-February until early March. It is primarily an ethnic festival that remembers the provinces past and showcases the unique indigenous culture and its people; namely, the seven tribal groups that originally inhabited the Bukidnon region. The rituals of these groups such as that for the inauguration of a new chieftain, the Panlisig (rite to drive away evil spirits), and the Pamalas (atonement ritual) are displayed during the festival. These traditional events are complemented by a civic parade, street dancing competition, garden show, as well as numerous sporting events.
