SINULOG 2023 – Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama announced Sinulog is set to resume its physical celebrations in January 2023.

One of the grandest and largest festivals in the Philippines is the Sinulog Festival. The festival is conducted every third Sunday of January to honor the Child Jesus. It is believed to be the protector of the city and its constituents.

The ceremony, which is performed through dancing, depicts the Pinoy people’s paganism and embrace of Christianity. Surely many people are wondering if the much-awaited event in Cebu will push through next year.
