Aliwan Fiesta also named the “Festival of Champions” brings together different cultural festivals of the country. The festival gathers talented artists from 17 provinces to take part in the competitions. The festival is lighted up with street dances, float parade and a beauty pageant called Reyna ng Aliwan 2013.

The fiesta began in 2003, with the aim of showcasing different Filipino cultures and heritage not just to the people in Metro Manila but to the world as a whole. The festivals combine the unique taste of festivals, flavors, religion and customs and showcase the best of color and craftsmanship.

Philippines, a group of 7107 islands has got various cultures and different island festivals to enjoy. Every city is pooled with events every year but Aliwan Fiesta remains the mother of all festivals.

The festival is lined up with four major events every year, the Pasakalye, the inter-school competition; Reyna ng Aliwan, the beauty pageant competition; street dancing competition and float competition. The festivals from Luzon Visayas and Mindanao converge at Manila every year for a colorful afternoon of street dance competition. The best of the Philippine festival takes away a Million Peso while the winner of float competition goes with half million peso prize money.

Aliwan Fiesta 2012:

Aliwan Fiesta 2012 was a huge success. The Dinagyang Festival of Iloilo held their heads high after winning the championship trophy for the third time in a row. Their Philippine-eagle inspired music and cautiously crafted choreography presented magnificent treat to the eyes of the people. The fiesta was held in April in a really hot weather but nothing stopped the artists from giving their best performances.

The 11th edition of the annual fest will be held this April right beside the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Every year, the police force ensures tight security on the day of the event highlight. Street dancing is all about fun in the Philippines and the street dance competition gathers country’s talented dancers, especially beautiful maidens, to present the best festive traditions in various parts of the country. The festivals are going to promote the vibrant tiles of Philippines.

The contingents, taking part in the festivities, aim to promote their regions presenting their colorful and upbeat ethnic dances. Aliwan, the Tagalog word for “entertainment or amusement” keeps its promise and gifts an extravagant mood to the onlookers.

  1. Lalo pa na ang buyog na paulit ulit ang performances ang ganoon parin ang music costumes at choreo….talagang nakakasawa at wala ng kwenta…at ang mga contingents na walang mga inovations sa music,style,skills,costumes,at pakintaban lang ng kulay ng props ang lahat na sumasayaw hay…nako lumang luma na nakakapagud na manood nito.

  2. @mocha mo, obvious na hindi ka nagbabasa ng history mo nauna lang gumawa at lumabas ang ati-atihan ng aklan,pero pareho silang may mga ati kasi pareho silang mga provicia na nasa panay island. Ang ati-atihan hindi talaga iiba ang kultura kasi pareho silang kultura. Sa concept ,art, music, choreo, at difficulties,costumes at mga props kailan man wala kaming nakikita na kumumpya ang dinagyang sa ati-atihan kahit pangalang iba yan. Natural na pareho sila ng kultura sa isla ng panay kaya ati silang pareho….At kahit kailang man ang Dinagyang more exciting at world class ang performances at nag perform na kahit saang sulok ng mundo, at humakot na ng napakaraming awards na proven na ang quality ng festival sa buong pilipinas at taon taon bago ang presentasyon nila..sa totoo lang.

  3. HMMMppp….tingnan nalang natin sa kurbada, Watch nalang sa Aliwan 2013…sa yearly Brand New presentation ng “The Best Tourism Event of the Philippines”…The Most Quality World Class Performances.

  4. Correctionssss…..walang kinakatakutan sila ano kahit sino pa lahat ng records nasa kanila na he he he…at dumaan man ang bagyo,sagupaan,o buhawi handa sila at hanggang ngayon nakatayo at handang lumaban kaya hanggang ngayon andiyan sila sumasali eh ang buyog sasali ba ngayong taon? ngayon sila ang buyog at arangkahin ang buyog nyo. Pano sila matakot at alam nila ang kalibre nila at taon taon bago ang WOW na mga performances nila. Matanong lang bakit ilang bisis na manalo ba ang buyog nyo sa aliwan.
