The Comprehensive (We Think) Dinagyang Festival 2015 Listing of Events

By joseph batcagan

So, Dinagyang weekend is this… err, weekend! And because we’re such nice guys and gals and only care for the convenience of our readers—heck, what else is the reason for us publishing a Dinagyang Survival Guide if not for this?—then we’ve decided to burn through some imaginary midnight oil through the weekend to give you a COMPREHENSIVE listing of all the cool stuff that will happen in this city starting on the 23rd and right through the 25th! Or, to be more precise, we think it’s comprehensive, anyway.

Here’s the thing: it is highly possible—nay, were even quite sure it has happened—that we might have missed some events throughout the course of research either because those events were not publicized online or because, admittedly, we don’t have the time to trawl through our group’s entire social media feeds to be truly comprehensive about it. Regardless, we hope this list helps you decide how you would like to spend this once-in-a-year weekend where being loud and colorful is actually encouraged!

Of course, we also have to point out that any events we have listed below are ALWAYS subject to change, and we’ll do our best to update this list throughout this week as those changes happen. In addition, if you think we might have missed out any event that you would like to see included in this list, then you can either email me at [email protected] with the subject line “Dinagyang Listing 2015” (gotta avoid them spams, you know) or shoot us a personal message at the Project Iloilo Facebook Page!

So, with that, bookmark this page if you must, plan whatever stuff you wanna do for this weekend, and please keep safe while doing so! You can also view the official Dinagyang itinerary and the corresponding route maps on this page if you want to get more info on how you can get around in the city. See ya on the streets!
