Three sections of the city will host Araw ng Dabaw mini concerts

During the ISpeak media session on Thursday morning, February 22, 2024, at the PSSO Building, SIR, Davao City, Margaret Lopez from the CTOO-Promotions Unit stated that "Kalingawan sa Distrito" is a major addition to this year's Araw ng Dabaw.

"Diba usually makita man nato pag naa tay mga festivals focus gyud siya mostly sa metropolitan o sa metro city, so ang purpose aning Kalingawan sa Distrito is we go from, libuton ang tulo ka distrito para naay mag held ug mini-concert (Traditionally, festivals tend to concentrate on the metropolitan area. The purpose of Kalingawan sa Distrito is to traverse all three districts and organize mini concerts)," she went on to say.

The first district's venue is the Daniel R. Aguinaldo National High School (DRANHS) gym, the second district's is Barangay Panalum, and the third district's is the Calinan Gym.

"Mini concert nga ma-feel sa atoang mga Dabawenyos na even though dili sila maka-adto ug Metro Davao, ma-reach gihapon didtoa ang festivities sa atoang founding anniversary (The mini concerts aim to provide the local Dabawenyos with a sense of celebration, even if they cannot attend events in Metro Davao. The festivities of our founding anniversary will still reach them)," she went on to say.

In addition to Kalingawan sa Distrito, the Sayaw Dabawenyos portion features folk dancing, which includes both simple rhythmic dances and Spanish and Latin dances.
The Safety and Security Cluster Night is a dedicated event for security clusters to participate in the celebrations.

To assure a delicious gastronomic experience, CTOO reintroduces the Mercado Dabawenyo, a food fair where locals can sample the wares of various exhibitors.

Meanwhile, she stated that the executive committee is looking at alternative routes to alleviate traffic congestion during the Pasko Fiesta activities, particularly Banda Dasig and Parada sa Pasko.

To choose a position that won't significantly affect traffic, close collaboration is being maintained with the City Transport and Traffic Management Office (CTTMO).

The three-week Araw ng Dabaw festival has an official schedule of events that has already been made public. Pagsaulog and Konsierto Dabawenyo will kick off the celebration on March 1.

March 15 is set aside for the Mutya ng Dabaw coronation night, while March 17 is set aside for the Parada Dabawenyos.
