Hirinugyaw-Suguidanonay Festival

Update | Cancel

Posted on October 01,2014

Hello CF Family

                    Start planning, pack your bags...:) In a few months the Hirinugyaw-Suguidanonay Festival will once again take place. (the end of January running into Febuary) You can translate this to be a celebration of jubilation and cheer, of sharing. It is held in Calinog, Iloilo province. It is a cultural-religious celebration.  In the begining it was simply known as the Hirinugyaw Festival. In the early 2000's they added Suguidanonay.  On the cultural side it displays the rich and colorful history of the Aetas community and Panay Bukidnon community. They do this through costumes and dance to tell stories along with oral histories being passed on. Ethnic heritage is something to be remembered, cherished, never forgotten The festival also pays homage to the Holy Infant Jesus/Santo Nino. You will hear the phrase Viva Senior Santo Nino shouted out. There is much to do and see. Various competitions. When this festaval first started over 30 years ago, it was looked at as being a copy cat of the Dinagyan festival In Iloilo City. In the past ten years it has proven to be so much more. Representing the interior cultural history of Panay. I invite you all to come and visit. Check out this wonderful festival. It is a safe place to visit and you will feel very welcome. I feel blessed to have been able to consider this area home. To see this festival from when it began. Though I will probably live elsewhere when I return, Calinog will always maintain a very special place in my heart.

Mabuhay Pilipinas!

God Bless

Hi Ellen

                   Oh my, very nice itinearary. I do hope your time allows. Hirinugyaw-Suguidanonay and Dinagyang take place at the same time for the most part. Calinog is only about 35 k from Iloilo City, mabe a little over an hour ride. Going to see Masff (M:)) are you? You will enjoy the Dinagyang Festival. I might be around for the Sinulog (God willing) Then you go up to Baguio, how lucky...:) Baguio Botanical Garden is so beautiful. Camp John Hay, The Philippine Military Acadamy, so much to do in that area. You can go see the mummies in Kabayan too. I see what you are doing...festival time with short work breaks in between...hehehe  God will keep you in good health and see you through. I'll keep you in my prayers too. Happy Happy Joy Joy guiding light of the sisterhood.

(maybe Kaaluman w/Angelie in August :~P)

God Bless

Hi Mr James,

I'm guessing that you had already experienced almost festivals that were celebrated all over Philippine island (more than I do :) ). Philippines are enriched with different kinds of festivities clebrated through out the year. It justifies the banner "It's More Fun in the Philippines" :-) whenever time of the year, you will always find something to enjoy and had alot of fun with.

I wish you more happy memories of Philippines and it's people.

God bless!
