Dinagyang is a festival of excellent choreography, a showcase of Ilonggo heritage and culture. It is as grand as Iloilo's old churches and mansions. It is as crisp as pinasugbong saging, as delectable as pancit molo and batchoy.
The festival was first started to celebrate the feast of the Sto. Niño. From a parish church festivity to honor the Child Jesus, the celebration has evolved to become a religious-cultural activity.
It is now a vehicle to promote Iloilo as a tourist and investment destination.
Through the years, the festival has gained national prominence and recognition by winning the national street dancing competition.
Viva Sr. Sto. Niño! Viva! Viva!
