August 15 2014 declared a holiday in Davao City

Davao City will be celebrating its annual celebration of Kadayawan Festival this coming August 15.

August 15 is a special non-working holiday in Davao City as mandated by Proclamation 829. The said proclamation, which was released by Malacanang last July 14, can be accessed in this link.

The said holiday will give residents of Davao City a three-day holiday since August 15 this year falls on a Friday.

Now regarded as one of the most popular festivals in the Philippines, the tradition of celebrating the Kadayawan fest as we know it now began in 1980s upon the initiative of the city’s longtime Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

You can find below the schedule of activities for Kadayawan Festival 2014, courtesy of The Davao Eagle:

PS: Since August 15, 2014 is a special holiday in Davao City, those who report for work on this day should get 30% of their regular hourly rate.

That is in compliance to the Department of Labor and Employment’s Handbook on Workers’ Statutory Monetary Benefits (2010 edition).
