Camiguin Lanzones Festival

Camiguin Lanzones Festival – October 23 to 29

The Camiguin Lanzones Festival is one of the festivals in the Philippines you should visit at least once in your life.

The Legend of the Camiguin Lanzones Festival

It is believed that the celebration started with the local legend about a childless couple who wished for a child from a lanzones tree fairy. The fairy granted them a healthy baby boy but the couple forgot to thank her. One day, a suspicious-looking woman approached their child while he was playing. The boy suddenly fell unconscious. His parents thought that it was the lanzones fairy who had enchanted the boy. The couple decided to perform a ritual to appease the fairy and, sure enough, the child became well again.

The following year, the couple invited the neighbouring barrio to participate in the thanksgiving ritual. From then on, the ritual became an annual festivity in Camiguin to recreate the ceremonies done by the ancient forefathers of the island to the gods that provide good weather and abundant harvest.

The schedule below had been provided by the Camiguin Provincial Government. They did print the schedule for us – on paper.

The Camiguin Lanzones Festival is a local fiesta, a commercial showcase and a tourist attraction. Interesting events for tourists are marked RED.
