      Baguio Flower Festival or Panagbenga (which means a season for blooming, a time for flowering) Festival is celebrated every last week of Febuary. It’s a week long (sometimes up to 8 days) festival where in people from all over the Philippines come to see the best of what Baguio City has to offer.

      Locals from all around Baguio City come to showcase as well as sell their products.

      The first time I was in Baguio for the Panagbenga Festival, there

      was only a Flower Parade, a beauty pageant, a market and exhibit of native products.

      But through the years, there have been more activities such as the Flower Tee Golf Tournament and a Food Festival.

      Since the Panagbenga Festival has become a major event in Baguio City’s calendar, all the other establishments join in the celebration through the years.

      If you plan to visit Baguio and watch the festival, you have to book months in advance because the hotels, hometels ...

      • and inns are fully booked come mid-January.

        My favorite part of the Festival is the Flower parade and the Market Encounter at Camp John Hay.

        The Flower Festival is usually kicked off by a parade of students dancing and singing in Session Road wearing flowers on their heads and bodies.

        There is a marching band that follows and they play ethnic music.

        Session road becomes a sea of flowers and you can barely see the cemented roads from all the

        floral arrangements.

        The Market actually started in Camp John Hay, but has grown since and another midnight market has sprouted near Burnham Park.

        Most of the goods are products from the neighboring towns as well as the native goods from Baguio City.

        Shopping to the max is what we call it, because the prices are really low.

        You have to come and visit Baguio City during the Flower Festival because it’s one of my favorite local celebrations in the Philippines.
