2018 Masskara Festival Schedules | Bacolod City

This year, Bacolod City will celebrate the 39th Masskara Festival. 

One more reason to visit Masskara Festival is that Bacolod was recently awarded as the Most Competitive Highly-Urbanized City in the Visayas and ranked 8th at the National Level during the 6th Competitiveness Summit and Awards of the National Competitiveness Council.

The world-famous celebration will start from October 8-28, 2018. If you look at it, that’s an 8-8-8 combination: 8/8/18

The pinnacle of the festival will consummate on October 26 to 28. 

This celebration also goes in line with Bacolod’s 80th birthday.

If you want to be in the Photographers’ Lane where the beginning of the Street Dance is, best accommodation is Planta Hotel.
