Cadiz Dinagsa Festival 2018 Schedule

cadiz dinagsa festival 2018

Cadiz City’s 44th Dinagsa Festival 2018 will start tomorrow, it’s one of the most anticipated festivals on the northern part of Negros Island because of the rhythmic beatings of the drums and merrymaking honoring the Senor Santo Nino.

One of the best and funniest parts of the festival is the “lamhitanay” which is that visitors, tourist or locals smother paints on each other’s faces or passersby. Prepare to get dirty and don’t be angry if you encounter this on the streets.



The 44th Dinagsa Festival 2018 will start January 13, 2018, up to January 28, 2018. Please see poster and table below for the schedule of events.
