  1. Hello
    I will bring my family in Kalibo, Aklan for ati-atihan on Jan. 14-17/ 2016. Any update info about the coming events/ updates.

  2. Hi there! Lovely that you have this schedule for 2013. Is this still updated? I will be there with my family on Jan. 17 to celebrate my son’s 13th birthday and I would appreciate an updated schedule. Also can I request help for any primers or info about the upcoming Ati-atihan Festival to assist me in preparing for our trip like good places to stay, scrumptious places to eat, etcetera. We are all so excited and good luck with the event! Cheers!

    • The schedule here covers the main events for the town of Kalibo. Because these events have such large crowds, the schedule is normally fixed in advance. There are many other activities going on in neighboring towns. We do not provide a schedule for them. We would recommend you make your travel and hotel accommodations well in advance. This is the most popular Street dancing event in all of the Philippines.
