Overview of Camiguin Lanzones Festival

Lanzones Festival is held every third week of October and it is a four day grand celebration of the Lanzones fruit. The most important livelihood in Camiguin is Lanzones. It is when a lot of tourists come to witness the joyous Lanzones festival.

Lanzones is one of the major fruit producers in the Philippines. Lanzones is a tropical fruit that grows extravagantly on the north-central coast of Mindanao. Lanzones has a pale brown skin and sweet translucent flesh. It is said that the sweetest Lanzones in the Philippines comes from Camiguin.

Lanzones Festival in Mambadjao Camiguin is celebrated with a weekend street dancing competition and parties, cultural shows, parade and beauty pageant (coronation of Mutya sa Buahanan) and trade fair that features local handicraft and products. Houses, street poles and even people are ornamented with Lanzones during the Lanzones Festival.

According to legends, an unknown beautiful maiden took the fruit’s past bitter flavor to replace it to delicious and sweet taste of the Lanzones, thus townsfolk dance in the streets to honor and celebrate. It also celebrated by the people in Camiguin as a contribution in making Mindanao as a cultural tourism destination and to give thanks for a bountiful harvest for all the agricultural products.

"This is the place people go to when they want peace and quiet. They have this huge room at the top floor where you can hang out, marvel at the sight of Guimaras while enjoying a refreshing mango shake. The rooms are charming; the landscape is enticing; the staff is accommodating and Em, the friendly owner will make sure your stay is unforgettable. This is indeed your home away from home.
