Panagbenga 1 

The Panagbenga Festival or “Flower Festival” of Baguio is from the Kankanaey word that means “season of blooming.” The festival pays tribute to the city’s flowers and the people’s efforts to rise up from the tragedy of the earthquake that struck the city in the 1990s.

As we celebrate in February the National Arts Month, let us journey once again to the North to experience the beauty and artistry of the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio.

Join us this 12 February 2022 at 4:00 PM on the official Facebook page and YouTube Channel of the DFA.

“Fiesta Filipinas Rerun: An Online Celebration of Philippine Festivals” is a project of the Department of Foreign Affairs, in partnership with the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and the Department of Tourism (DOT).
