Lanzones Festival: Celebrating Abundance and Sweetness

One of the most anticipated festivals in Camiguin is the Lanzones Festival, held every third week of October. This lively event pays homage to the island’s most iconic fruit, the lanzones, known for its succulent sweetness. The festival is a celebration of the abundant harvest and is marked by colorful parades, street dances, and beauty pageants. Revelers don traditional costumes, adorned with lanzones leaves and fruits, as they dance to the beat of lively music. The highlight of the festival is the grand street dance competition, where participants showcase their talent and creativity in choreographed performances. Visitors can indulge in the juicy sweetness of lanzones, savoring the fruit’s unique flavor while immersing themselves in the infectious energy of the festivities. (Date: Third week of October)

Panaad Festival: A Sacred Lenten Tradition

While Camiguin is famous for its vibrant festivals, it also holds a solemn and sacred event known as the Panaad Festival. This religious celebration takes place during Holy Week, commemorating the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The festival involves a reenactment of the Stations of the Cross, where devotees and participants walk through the streets of Camiguin, stopping at various stations that depict the moments leading up to Christ’s crucifixion. The Panaad Festival is a deeply spiritual experience, bringing together the community in prayer and reflection. It is a time for introspection and reverence as locals and visitors join in the solemnity of the Lenten season. (Date: Holy Week, varies each year)
