Kadayawan sa Davao is on its 31st celebration in Davao City. Yes, the most festive and colorful festival in Davao City is again in celebration of abundance and culture of people residing the city. The ten (10) tribes of Davao City is to be remembered during this celebration and thanksgiving of abundant harvest is what Kadayawan essentially is about. Originally, this celebration is called APODUWALING, in which, the celebration emphasizes the royalties of Davao: King of all mountains in the Philippines - Mt. Apo; King of all fruits in the Philippines - Durian; and Queen of all flowers in the Philippines - Waling-waling.
