If you’re planning to experience this lively event, we invite you to stay at our hotel, where comfort and convenience meet Aklan’s rich traditions.
The Ati-Atihan Festival: Aklan’s Cultural Gem
The Ati-Atihan Festival is one of the Philippines’ most famous and oldest festivals, tracing its roots back to the 13th century. Celebrated every third Sunday of January in Kalibo, the provincial capital of Aklan, this festival is a harmonious blend of indigenous traditions and Catholicism.
The highlight of the Ati-Atihan Festival is the Opening Salvo, a vibrant and energetic parade featuring locals and tourists donning colorful face paint and tribal-inspired costumes. The rhythm of the drums and chants fills the air, and the streets come alive with dancing and merriment. It’s a visual and auditory feast that’s not to be missed!
