Switch your summer festival for a cultural celebration in the Philippines for a fraction of the price

January 22, 2020 Airfare Deals No Comments Email Email

Young Aussies could have a holiday and attend an overseas festival for the price of attending a festival in Australia research has found.

With 58% of millennials attending a festival* it’s clear Aussies love a chance to dance and enjoy some quality time with their friends. However, the experience doesn’t come cheap, with avid festival goers spending over $1,000 on attending festivals a year*.

Let’s face it, if you’ve been there and done the Aussie festivals, like most of us have, maybe it is time to venture further afield. Thanks to Cebu Pacific you can have a holiday and experience a Filipino festival for a fraction of the price. It’s time to eat, sleep, dance, repeat and book a flight for only $199**.

Don’t let your bank account keep you apart-y from a good festival, it’s time to dance the night away and book between the 20th and 23rd  of January for travel between 1st February and 30th June 2020.

So, grab your party-ner in crime, pack your sunscreen, bucket hat, sunglasses and experience a Filipino cultural celebration for a price that will make even your wallet dance. From the vibrant colours to the extravagant and incredible outfits, you’re sure to find a Philippine festival to create unforgettable memories at. Catch the remaining festivals of the Philippines this year starting with Panagbenga Festival on February.

  • Panagbenga Festival – February (Clark)

We’ve found flower power at its finest, at the Panagbenga Festival in Clark, North West of Manila. This free, month-long annual blossom celebration pays tribute to the city’s blooms, reflecting history, traditions and values and flourishes through community spirit involvement. The term “Panagbenga” comes from a Kankanaey term meaning “season of blooming”.

  • Moriones Festival – March/April (Mandrique)

Filipinos sure know how to party South East of Manila, at the Moriones Festival. The entertaining Easter festival combines folk religion with Catholic tradition and turns Marinduque’s streets into a colourful re-enactment of the events drawn out over the seven days of Holy Week; donning centurion masks and costumes, and arming themselves with wooden swords, spears and shields.

  • Pintados Festival – June/July (Tacloban)

However, the Pintados Festival in Tacloban, North East of Cebu, sees body painting traditions of the ancient tattooed ‘pintados’ warriors come to life. Dancers paint their bodies in patterns that resemble armour to represent these past warriors on June 29, the day of the Feast of the Señor Santo Niño de Leyte.

All of these festivals encourage people to see the value and excellence of the customs of the nation’s predecessors and are free entry, encouraging travellers far and wide to join in on all the fun.
