Kaamulan Festival 2021 is officially canceled
It’s official. Kaamulan Festival, the yearly gathering of the 7 hill tribes of Bukidnon, is again canceled.
In an advisory released by his office dated March 4, 2021, Bukidnon Governor Jose Ma. Zubiri, Jr. announced that “with a heavy heart, I regret to inform the public that we are still unable to hold the Kaamulan Festival this year.”
Zubiri said that due to COVID-19, Bukidnon has been placed under community quarantine.
“Following the guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force, all forms of gathering are strongly discouraged,” he said.
Kaamulan Festival 2020 was also canceled to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease.
“Most of us are looking forward to celebrate Kaamulan Festival this year. However, as much as I wanted to push this grand celebration, the public health and safety of the people has always been my topmost priority. This virus is no joke and we have to take this seriously,” Zubiri said.
