DINAGYANG GUAM 2012

 

The Philippine Consulate General is pleased to announce that the 2012 Dinagyang Festival Champion Tribu Pan-ay is coming to Guam this month to bring to the island the unrivaled grandiose festivities of the "mother of all festivals" in the Philippines.

Certainly one of the country's major tourist attractions, the Dinagyang Festival Ati-atihan Streetdance Competition of Iloilo showcases the rich culture and heritage of our people.  It has been named by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCAA) as the Festival of Excellent Folk Choreography.  As such, it is expected that Tribu Pan-ay's performance in Guam will bring delight and amusement to its audience.

The Iloilo International, in cooperation with the Mayors' Council of Guam through the offices of the Mayors of Dededo, Agat, Sta. Rita and Agana Heights, as well as the offices of Sen. Dennis Rodriguez, Jr., and Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo and the Consulate General, coordinated with the Office of Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog of Iloilo City and the Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation in order to bring these world-class performers to Guam.

Dubbed as Dinagyang Guam 2012, Tribu Pan-ay will perform at the University of Guam Fieldhouse on Friday, 20 July 2012, 6 p.m.  Ticket prices are US$10.00 for general admission and US$50 for VIP seating.
