Every fourth Sunday of January, the City of Iloilo celebrates the Dinagyang Festival in honor of the Sto. Niño. While Kalibo Celebrates the Ati-atihan and Cebu’s Sinulog every 3rd week, Iloilo’s version of the celebration is held on the fourth week.

Every year, thousands of tourists flock to Iloilo to witness Dinagyang which has also been declared as the Best Tourism event in the Philippines by the Association of Tourism Officers of the Philippines (ATOP).
