Carnival Dates: January 11, 2022 to January 18, 2022 Nicknamed “the Mother of all Philippine Festivals,” Ati-Atihan is a festival of tribal dance, indigenous costumes, music, and parades, all in honor of the Santo Niño, or Baby Jesus. It’s a strange mix, however both Christians and Non-Christians alike take part in this wildly popular festival, which has sparked copycat celebrations such as Sinulog Festival in Cebu or the Dinagyang festival in Iloilo City. Held in January on the island of Panay in the Philippines, the Ati-Atihan Festival is a place where indigenous and Christian beliefs collide in a spectacle of color and dance. Follow the spectacular street parades and shout “Hala Bira” along with animated crowds, or marvel at the mesmerizing indigenous dance competitions that will impress even the most experienced Carnival connoisseurs.
