Kadayawan Art Exhibit at Marco Polo Davao8/11/2015
Slated to be as one the biggest and most-awaited festivals in the Philippines, the Kadayawan Festival is observed annually in Davao City during the month of August as the ten tribes converge as one in celebration of life, culture, and thanksgiving for the city’s bountiful harvest.
In celebration of the Kadayawan Festival this year, Marco Polo Davao kicked off its festivities with the launching of the Kadayawan 2015 Art Exhibit last August 10, 2015 at the hotel lobby. The Kadayawan Art Exhibit proudly showcases the wide-ranging richness of Davao’s culture and heritage as expressed in fashion, design and photography and is on display until September 05, 2015.
