·1 min read

AFTER a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic, the Pasigarbo sa Sugbo, also known as the Festival of all Festivals, is set to return on August 28, 2022.

The Cebu Provincial Tourism Office (PTO) said the return of the festival is aimed at further developing tourism and economy in Cebu province.

Pasigarbo sa Sugbo is a grand cultural showcase of different festivals in the province. One of its goals is to attract local and foreign tourists to visit the different cities and towns of Cebu.

The Pasigarbo Street Dancing and Grand Showdown Competition are the main highlights of the event. It will also showcase different delicacies and tourist sites of the province.

A new Festival Queen will also be crowned at the Cebu City Sports Center on August 26.

The government last held the Pasigarbo sa Sugbo during the 450th founding anniversary of the Province of Cebu in August 2019. A total of 45 contingents from component cities and municipalities in the province participated in the event.

Apart from the Pasigarbo sa Sugbo, the local government also prepares for the continuation of Suroy-Suroy Sugbo, which attracts thousands of visitors who want to see and experience the tourist destinations of the province.

Maria Lester "Marti" Ybanez, head of the PTO, said they have yet to announce other details of the Pasigarbo and tourism-related activities as officials have yet to meet for planning. (ANV, JGS)
