One of our highly-anticipated annual celebrations in SOX or SOCCSKSARGEN Region is the Bangsi Festival of the Municipality of Maitum in Sarangani Province.

Celebrated every last week of January, Bangsi Festival is a tribute to the town's fisher folks and to celebrate the bountiful wealth of the sea. It is named after Maitum's "One town One Product" - the flying fish or bangsi.

This year, Bangis Festival is scheduled from January 21-28 with main highlights happening on January 26 & 27.
