The City of Davao will be having its first Summerfest this coming April 29 to May 29, 2011. The month-long occasion will involve sports, music and cultural activities. The event is organized by the Davao City Government in participation with the Small Hotels Association of Davao, Davao Association of Tour Operators and Davao Tourism Association, Davao Travel Agency Association, GUIDE- Davao, Davao Cooperative Center for Visitors and Convention, and Davao Airline Operators Association.

The First Davao Summerfest was realized to address the need to hold an event since there is nothing happening in Davao during summer season. The Summerfest will also compliment the other existing festivals in Davao namely, Araw ng Dabaw, Kadayawan Festival and Pasko Fiesta. This event is expected to attract more tourists and sports enthusiasts.

This year’s Summerfest will feature activities that geared towards sports, eco-adventure, and entertainment. Among the activities include a Soccer Tournament, a horse show, marathon, judo championships, frisbee competition and adventure races.

The holding of the Summerfest is a positive development for Davao as this will not only bring income to the city but this will also promote Davao as a major summer destination in the Philippines.
